The first coronavirus vaccine trial injection was done this Monday. In specific, researchers from Kaiser Permanente Washington laboratory in Seattle, the USA injected the vaccine into the volunteers. Jennifer Haller is a 43-year-old woman working in a small technology company. She was the first human to receive the first trial injection. After getting the first trial injection coded mRNA-1273, Haller said she felt amazing.

The First Human To Get Coronavirus Vaccine Trial Injection

The researchers tested the vaccine named mRNA-1273 in animals and showed a great effect in fighting the SARS-CoV-2 virus. So, those scientists from Kaiser Permanente Washington laboratory in Seattle, the USA tested it in humans. The first human volunteer to receive the trial injection is a 43-year-old woman named Jennifer Haller. She is working as a manager at a small technology company in the USA.

Moderna Biotech Company co-operated with the US National Institute of Health (NIH) to develop an mRNA-1273 coronavirus vaccine. Then, it made a new record of the shortest time to invent a new vaccine in history.

As usual, it takes scientists months to do research and invent a new vaccine for a certain disease. However, Moderna used a new genetic method to shorten the time. This vaccine, after penetrating into human bodies, helps the immune system recognize SARS-CoV-2 viruses to kill them.

They Are Testing The New Vaccine

Haller said it was an amazing opportunity for her to do something when coronavirus pandemic made people hopeless. Except for Haller, there are more than three other volunteers joining this vaccine trial of NIH and Moderna. Then, researchers will monitor the effect as well as the side-effect of this vaccine, if any. If there is no severe side-effect, they will test it in the other 40 volunteers. Each volunteer will receive two injections of the mRNA-1273 vaccine. The distance between the two injections is one month.

To ensure safety for the volunteers in the trial, they keep the volunteers away from the SARS-CoV-2 virus and monitored carefully. If the safety test has a good result, they will carry out effectiveness tests in small groups of volunteers. According to the researchers, they will do effectiveness tests in people in good health conditions in epicenters.

The scientists also claimed that it would take time to prove the safety and effectiveness of this vaccine in humans. However, it’s good news for us, especially when the first volunteer said she felt amazing after getting the injection.
