The first COVID-19 vaccine tested in the U.S. activated the immune systems of volunteers exactly the way immunologists anticipated, just like Dr. Anthony Fauci predicted it would. “No matter how you slice this, this is good news,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. government’s top infectious disease expert, told his colleagues.
Forty-five daring volunteers were earlier injected with the vaccine containing neutralizing antibodies — molecules that blocked infections — at levels similar in people who survived COVID-19, according to reports in the New England Journal of Medicine.
The experimental vaccine developed by the U.S. National Institutes of Health along with Moderna Inc., will start its most important trial run later this month. Dr. Fauci reported that a crowd of 30,000 volunteers who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get poked beginning July 27, will be the guinea pigs.
