The Military Medical Academy said initial results show that Nanocovax is totally safe and produces good antibody. After taking a second shot, the vaccine is expected to stimulate antibodies which is 4 to 5 times higher than in the first shot.
Researchers will closely watch the volunteers’ health for 6 months to a year to evaluate the result. Scientists will submit their documents to the Ministry of Health to make suitable adjustment for the second phase after the Lunar New Year holiday.
Nanocovax is the first local COVID-19 vaccine to make it to human trials. It is also the first Vietnamese COVID-19 vaccine that has completed the research process and has achieved high efficiency during the course of clinical trials.
