Widespread Vaccinations Unlikely Until Mid-2021: WHO

World Health Organization spokesperson Margaret Harris said Friday her colleagues don’t believe widespread coronavirus vaccinations will occur until the middle of 2021.

Harris, speaking to reporters in Geneva, said there are presently 34 vaccines worldwide at the stage of human trials, with 142 vaccine hopefuls in the pre-clinical phase, CNN reported.

She spoke of her awareness of Russian peer-reviewed results of phase one and phase two clinical trials — the world’s first approved COVID-19 vaccine for public use — being published in the medical journal The Lancet.

Without specifically mentioning the Russian vaccine, Harris said safety and efficiency are of importance, noting phase three trials “will take much longer” in order to “see how truly protective” and safe any vaccine will be, CNN reported.
