When Will Vaccine for Covid-19 Available? - Virus 4

A vial of Vaccine, just for illustration only (credit to Nasdaq)

In simple way, we all might know that vaccine is an antigen from a particular virus, bacteria or other pathogen agents, injected into human bodies.

The main purpose is to train, boost, encourage and trigger our immune system to recognize, then to combat a pathogen, in this case let’s say Covid-19.

We might wonder: why is it so long to find the effective vaccine for Covid-19?

The answer is that long steps and processes must be followed from searching and selecting vaccine candidates until to be ready for mass productions.

Step 1: Finding and develop “candidate” vaccines by available techniques such as messenger RNA

Step 2: Testing to animal (model)

Step 3: Clinical trial to human being. Trials to small number of people

Step 4: Trial to more people. To find out how immune system responds to potential Covid-19

Step 5: More and more patients are tested in long term.

Step 6: Reviewed by relevant agencies such as Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US

Step 7: This is a final step. If FDA approves, then mass production for cure the Covid-19

It will take 12 to 18 months from step 1 to step 7, if everything goes well. Thus, almost certainly that we will have no “medicine” to combat Covid-19 in this cycle.

  3. Good explanation of the steps. Except in USA they are skipping the testing on animals and went straight to testing on volunteer humans. This started last week I think. This is not the normal procedure but this is what they are doing to try and I guess speed things up. It will still take long time.

  6. I don't think we will have a vaccine soon, but maybe for the next go-around. Let's hope some of the existing drugs will be able to help at this time. Stay safe!

  13. In Germany the law for Vaccine is a bit different because the FDA is not responsible for the EU.

  19. Sadly because the process is so long and has so many steps, more and more people will die. Until then we should do our best to follow the rules and stay at home.

  20. we can't place our hopes on a vaccine. Hopefully, this shutdown of society will help slow the infection rates and allow us to get through the pandemic.

  21. I think they are going to have to skip a couple of steps if they want to get the vaccine out sooner than later. It is all happening rapidly and changing daily. Who knows what we will be doing next month to battle it.

  22. Hopefully an effective vaccine can be created in case this ends up being a virus that comes back each year.

  24. Thus, the idea to have “herd immunity” without vaccine is not only very bad idea, but also crazy or insane.
