Leading HIV Doctor: I Wouldn't Count on Coronavirus Vaccine

Almost one in five Republicans say they have no interest in a vaccine, more than twice the proportion of Democrats who said the same. The team will recruit 500 frontline staff, screening and vaccinating them, either with the COVID-19 candidate or with a meningitis vaccine used as a control in this randomised blind study.

The poll, which surveyed 4,428 adults between May 13 and May 19, pointed to a consistent lack of trust between pollsters and the president.

Since the new virus emerged in China late previous year, COVID-19 has spread around the world, infecting more than 5 million people and killing more than 300,000.

Jeff Douglas, the managing director of Douglas Pharmaceuticals, will chair the company Covid-19 Vaccine Corporation Limited.

Thailand on Saturday began testing a vaccine against the coronavirus on monkeys after positive trials in mice, an official said.

While these breakthroughs have been significant, no vaccine is ready for publid deployment yet, and it will likely be some time before one is.

Most of the survey's pollsters said they would be "heavily influenced by guidance from the Food and Drug Administration [FDA]".

For example, among those who said they were "not very" interested in taking the vaccine, 29% said they would be more interested if the FDA approved it.

On May 11, the National Institutes of Health stressed that a vaccine for COVID-19 will be "essential" in protecting the global community from the virus.

Experts believe the pollsters who are on the fence about whether or not they would take a vaccine could probably be persuaded.

Suvit said that Thailand has started reserving two manufacturers for its vaccine for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. "I would have expected somewhere around 75 percent".
