That level of trust takes time to rebuild if it has been eroded. And, it is of interest to India, as Pune-based Serum Institute has a production and distribution alliance on this vaccine for low and middle income countries. Antibody responses against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein were induced in all age groups and were boosted and maintained at 28 days after booster vaccination, including in the 70 years and older group.
Rutgers is also one of 90 sites across the US for Moderna's phase 3 vaccine trial. "The robust antibody and T-cell responses seen in older people in our study are encouraging", explains the co-author of the study, Dr Maheshi Ramasamy from the University of Oxford .
The two-dose vaccine was given to 560 healthy adult volunteers in a second-stage clinical trial , including 240 volunteers 70 years of age and older. "It was also quite clear that two doses of vaccine are better than one dose". "It's critical to have diverse participants in a coronavirus vaccine trial so we know it is effective for populations that are often underrepresented in research", said XinQi Dong, who's directing community recruitment for the Johnson & Johnson trial.
According to the Livingston County Health Department, since just October 30th, the number of confirmed and probable cases in the county has nearly doubled from 2,205 to 3,953, while hospitalizations have increased from 148 to 170. All eyes remain on Lake County as it was the only county in Northeast Ohio to make it on DeWine's top 20 counties with the highest occurrence of COVID-19 cases.
However, the study is yet to be reviewed and published, which means other scientists will have to scrutinise the academic research. Scientists in the United Kingdom have found that mouthwash created to fight gum disease can kill coronavirus in merely 30-second.
