Vaia: “If all goes well vaccine by spring” – Ansa /Courier TV
“We officially communicate that the first dose of the vaccine to the volunteer person has been inoculated at this time”, said Francesco Vaia, health director of Spallanzani during the press point for the trial of the Covid vaccine, carried out with the support of the Lazio Region. “The volunteer person will be kept under observation, then he will go home and be called back and observed for 12 weeks, up to 24 weeks. Then, if all goes well, there will be the second and third phase of experimentation that we will probably do in a Latin American country where the virus is growing, “he says. On the timing: “We are interested in it being effective, our hope is that it will be ready in the spring,” explains Vaia.
