Thevaccinewas fast-tracked to human trials, but before it's ready for public use it will still be some time.


A healthy volunteer in Seattle is the first person in the U.S to receive a dose of an coronavirus vaccine as part of a new clinical trial, government health officials announced yesterday March 16.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) allowed the new vaccine to be fast-tracked into clinical trials without thorough testing in animal models, which usually stands as a strict prerequisite to human testing. While making the jump to human trials could bring the vaccine to market faster, this is only step one.
Over the next six weeks, researchers plan to enroll 45-participants in the trial, which will test the safety of the vaccine as well as its ability to induce an immune response in the volunteers. The trial will take place at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute (KPWHRI) in Seattle.
