How To Apply The 'At Risk' Strategy To Vaccine Development #975
Dr. Anthony Fauci says we probably won't have to wait 12-18 months or even more for a vaccine against the COVID-19 virus.
The reason for that is we are already applying an At Risk strategy to the vaccine development.
What that means is we've already identified a number of possible vaccines and actually started manufacturing them...even though the testing is not yet complete.
Once the testing is complete and the best vaccine is identified, we will already have a stockpile ready to go.
As for all the other vaccines being manufactured that prove not to be suitable, they will of no use anymore. The money invested in them will effectively be wasted. That's the risk.
But in this case, the financial risk of manufacturing vaccines that have not yet been proven to work, is less than the risk of not getting a head start on vaccine production.
