COVID Vaccine Likely to Be Once a Year – 133+ Candidate Vaccines

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, member of the boards of Pfizer and biotech company Illumina and former FDA commissioner expects that any coronavirus vaccine that proves to be safe and effective will still probably only provide immunity for a limited amount of time, maybe “up to a year,” former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said.

White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday he worries about the durability of a potential coronavirus vaccine, saying there’s a chance it may not provide long-term immunity.

The immunity’s not going to be long term in the form of a smallpox vaccine or a polio vaccine where you get the vaccine once and you’re protected for the rest of your life or most of your life.

The WHO has a DRAFT landscape of COVID-19 candidate vaccines – 2 June 2020 They list 10 candidate vaccines in clinical evaluation and 123 in pre-clinical analysis.

There are 200+ potential therapeutic and vaccine options for COVID-19, GEN has grouped the candidates into four broad categories based on their developmental and (where applicable) clinical progress.

Genetic engineering news lists its top 15 front runner treatments or vaccines.

Here is there list they categorize as good but not front runners for COVID treatments.

Category 3 are still being closely tracked.

The last category are ones that need more data before they can be assessed.
