Army researcher: Coronavirus vaccine may be available by end of year – Fox News

2 min read

A senior Army researcher said Tuesday that a coronavirus vaccine could possibly be available to some parts of the United States within the year.

Col. Wendy Sammons-Jackson, director of the Military Infectious Disease Research Program, told reporters at a Pentagon briefing that it was “reasonable to expect that there will be some form of a vaccine.”


Earlier this month, President Trump announced a public-private partnership to develop a COVID-19 vaccine by year-end in what is being called “Operation Warp Speed.” Biotech company Moderna reached a significant milestone last month when it announced that its potential COVID-19 vaccine produced antibodies in all 45 participants in a trial.

Dr. Kayvon Modjarrad, another researcher, said scientists were learning about the virus at a faster pace than other infectious diseases in the past.

“So, going to a vaccine in a matter of months, from concept all the way to Phase Three clinical trials and potentially licensure is unprecedented,” he said. “But in this case I think very much is possible.”


The federal government is working with international companies to develop anti-body drugs, officials said. The military plans to test its own vaccine sometime in the late summer, Reuters reported.

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
