Dutch coronavirus vaccine fast-tracked to test on humans
In Leiden, Jannsen Vaccines have been working hard since the start of the outbreak to develop a coronavirus vaccine. After a period of testing that has proven promising, the company is now ready to test the vaccines on 1,045 healthy people from Belgium and the United States.
If the vaccine proves to be safe, does not affect the immune response and reacts well with the human body, the next stage of implementation will commence. If all goes according to plan, the company wishes to develop and export one billion vaccines by 2021.
