Australia’s first human trials of a potential COVID-19 vaccine have begun in Melbourne, with about 130 people involved in the program.
Clinical research organisation Nucleus Network will be in charge of the early stages of testing the vaccine NVX-CoV2373, before the trial expands to Brisbane within a week.
The participants are healthy people between 18 and 59 years old.
Infectious diseases physician and microbiologist Paul Griffin said the trial was “the first critical step” to creating a potential safe vaccine against COVID-19.
