Canada’s First COVID-19 Vaccine is Now in Testing Stages

While World Leaders are making monumental changes such as travel restrictions and bans on large social gatherings to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, a vaccine is currently being worked on in Canada. 

As of today, a Saskatchewan coronavirus vaccine is officially in the testing stages. While it is still quite early to conclude it will be ready for human use soon, researchers are weeks away from finishing the research stages and feel positive that the vaccine will work. 

In early January 2020, it was announced that the University of Saskatchewan received permission from the Public Health Agency in Canada and granted almost $1 million in funding to start working on a vaccine for COVID-19. 

According to researchers, animal testing will help scientists evaluate vaccines, antiviral medication, and drugs to protect animals and humans. Once animal testing is complete the research team will then send any viable vaccine for clinical studies before being confirmed as safe for humans.
