Why is Jesus Our Ultimate Vaccine for Sin? - Pastor Mark Finley
Chapter 3. Discovered: The Ultimate Vaccine
Research laboratories and university medical centers throughout the United States and around the world are racing at breakneck speed to find an effective vaccine for the coronavirus COVID-19. These trial vaccines are designed to produce a strong immune response, including an increased production of antibodies and protection that will last longer against viral and bacterial infections.
The University of Nebraska is part of a global hunt for the much-needed protection against a virus that has played havoc with the world economy, forced people into self-quarantine, and infected millions of people. As countries have attempted to control the spread of this deadly pandemic, one of the larger concerns that has surfaced is the fear that a second round of COVID-19 might strike within a short time. This concern has caused researchers to place top priority on developing a vaccine as quickly as possible.
The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) is coordinating its work with laboratories, universities, and research institutes in a frantic attempt to discover a vaccine. They have begun their first trial studies in Seattle, Washington. Presently, about two thirds of that study’s participants have gotten the first of two needed doses. Forty healthy volunteers at the Kansas City research lab and the University of Pennsylvania have also begun clinic trials using this vaccine. One medical pharmaceutical company, Inovio, is working with Chinese researchers to also begin a similar study in that country soon. These early-stage studies are a first step to see if a vaccine appears safe enough for larger tests needed to prove whether it will protect against the virus.
