U.S. researchers have given the first shot to a healthy American volunteer in their test of an experimental coronavirus vaccine.

The medical breakthrough spearheads the worldwide hunt for protection against this surging pandemic. Ultimately, 45 volunteers at Seattle’s Kaiser Permanente research facility will be injected. (BBC News)

The vaccine cannot cause Covid-19 but contains a harmless genetic code copied from the virus that causes the disease.

Experts say it will still take many months to know if this vaccine, or others also in research, will work.

And this first human trial, funded by the National Institutes of Health, sidesteps a check that would normally be conducted – making sure the vaccine can trigger an immune response in animals.

But the biotechnology company behind the work, Moderna Therapeutics, says the vaccine has been made using a tried and tested process.

Volunteers will receive two shots in total, 28 days apart. Even if the preliminary results go well, it could take up to 18 months for a potential vaccine to become publicly available.

We will be collectively greedy and stupid enough to let China do it. We will ignore the 600lb gorilla in the room that screams this was a mild test run of a biological attack that was planned and deliberate. Two fold desirable outcome: return older population that is non-productive, stress test vulnerability of free world to biological warfare.

Physically we are doing okay but psychologically they have crippled us. And we will still foolishly grant them most favored.

Good question. How much of our 50 billion went to “researchers” in Communist China? Why so much foot dragging. Turns out FDA and CDC had nonsensical controls that delayed the test kits. FDA and CDC need new people at the top. FDA took some supplement off the market some years ago that were excellent for fighting flu. They are crooked, just like China.

Agreed. Manufacture the meds in USA. Bring back pharmaceutical companies like Parke Davis. Better pharmaceuticals, more jobs.

Which by that time…DJT will have been re-elected, and the msm will be screaching about a new sky falling, (because he won again) and we’ll be subjected to more of the morons that populate cable. SOLUTION: Don’t listen, get a flu shot, stay away from sick children…like we do every year!
