The next critical phase for The University of Queensland’s COVID-19 vaccine has now commenced. On Monday July 14, the University of Queensland human trials of its COVID vaccine.
The researchers at the University required up to 120 volunteers for the first stage of the human trial. More than 4000 individuals expressed their interest in volunteering.
It is expected that it will take three months for preliminary results of this trial. If everything goes well, the next stage will involve a larger group with a wider demographic to determine the efficacy of the vaccine.
The University of Queensland vaccine made in Queensland by Queenslanders could save millions of lives worldwide.
“Participants are thoroughly assessed so we know that they are fit and healthy and eligible to take part, and we will follow them closely through regular monitoring for 12 months,” Dr Griffin said.
