From vaccine launch to mass inoculation: Authorities talk dates
08 September 2020 @ 19:43

IN CONJUNCTION with the European Union and the World Health Organisation (WHO), Spain's government is now starting to put dates on when the first vaccines against Covid-19 will be administered, and how long it could be before inoculation spreads to the public as a whole.

These range from this coming autumn to summer 2021, but depend upon the source of the drug – several are being developed at once worldwide and some are farther ahead than others.

According to the WHO, only between six and nine volunteers are involved in the most advanced stages of clinical trials, and around 30,000 or more are needed to complete this in order for widespread information about efficiency and safety to be scientifically valid.

This said, volunteers from Spain have been keeping the phones ringing off the hook, wanting to participate – although only a small selection of those who put their names down will be considered suitable, since they need to fall into set criteria: Those aged 18 to 55 with no health problems and no history of SARS-CoV-2, and the higher-risk over-65 age group.
