A Coronavirus Vaccine Could Be Ready by September, Says Oxford Scientists

Human trails is expected to start within weeks.

  • A team of researchers from Oxford University have said that a coronavirus vaccine may be available by September of this year.
  • The vaccine is expected to enter human trials within weeks.

As the world continues to face increasing numbers of infections and deaths caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we’re seeing a glimmer of hope as scientists from Oxford University have recently declared that a vaccine is already in the works – and it may soon hit the market sooner than we thought possible.

According to reports, a COVID-19 vaccine could be available as early as September of this year. This has been confirmed by vaccinology professor Sarah Gilbert who leads a team of scientists in Oxford in making one.

In an interview with Times of London, Gilbert claims she is confident that the vaccine will be effective.

The professor explained:

“I think there’s a high chance that it will work based on other things that we have done with this type of vaccine. It’s not just a hunch and as every week goes by we have more data to look at . . . I would go for 80%, that’s my personal view.”

Meanwhile, a Bloomberg article tells us that the team of researchers are scheduling 500 people ages 18 to 55 for vaccine testing in the coming weeks. This will soon be followed by a final trial stage of 5,000 people.

“We would hope to have at least some doses that are ready to be used by September,” Bloomberg quoted Gilbert. “There won’t be enough for everywhere by then, but the more manufacturing we can do starting from now, then the more doses there will be.”
