Israeli Researchers Believe Coronavirus Vaccine Testing Could Commence by June

3

Israeli researchers said they are days away from finishing production of the active component of a coronavirus vaccine that could be tested on humans starting June 1.

“We are in the final stages and within a few days we will hold the proteins—the active component of the vaccine,” Dr. Chen Katz, group leader of the biotechnology group at the MIGAL Galilee Research Institute, told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

The human trials will be conducted on “young, healthy individuals” and will then likely expand to the general population, Katz said, adding that he believes the vaccine will be available first in Israel.

MIGAL said in late February that it would complete production of its vaccine within three weeks and have it on the market in three months, but Katz explained to the Post that the process was delayed because it took longer than anticipated to receive the genetic construct they ordered from China, due to airways being closed and the product needing to be rerouted.

The group, funded partially by a NIS 30 million ($8,225,600) grant from Israel’s Ministry of Science and Technology, is working with regulators to ensure that the vaccine is safe to try on humans.

Katz said because it will be an oral vaccine, “the quality of this kind of vaccine should be closer to food regulations than pharma regulations or somewhere in between. We hope that we will not need to go through the complete purification process like in the drug industry because that could delay us.”

  1. This vaccine has to go through 3 phases before it is administered to humans. So I question its safety especially since it has been accelerated. Also, it is important to find out what ingredients and adjuvants were used to make this vaccine. My only hope is that since it is given orally, it may not have serious side effects like
    Encephalopathy or seizures. Time will tell. Iyh,the Geulah will come very soon and there won’t be any need for a vaccine.

    • Did you check the ingredients and adjuvants used to make the MMR and other vaccines before you injected your dear children with them?

  2. Don’t be fooled by this dangerous deadly vaccine. The coronavirus deaths was 60%-80% LESS than the yearly flu and flu shots.
