(Worthy News) – A vaccine for the coronavirus is on track to be ready for human trials sooner than anticipated, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Tuesday.
“From the time we had the available sequence [of the virus], we had hoped to be in clinical trials within two to three months,” Fauci said. “I’m happy to report to you this afternoon that we are on time at least, and maybe even a little better.”
Boston-based biotech company Moderna sent the first batch of its vaccine to the NIAID on Monday for study. Part of the White House’s $2.5 billion supplemental budget request includes more than $1 billion to spend on vaccine development. Using the additional funding, the institute expects to start human trials on about 25 volunteers by the end of April.
