Switzerland potential Covid vaccine in the form of a patch

Switzerland will test the vaccine from 10 January onwards at Lausanne’s Unisanté University.

According to the Swiss media, the vaccine works on a different principle to those currently in use and does not use messenger RNA.

The head of the clinical trial, Alix Miauton, explained that ‘this vaccine is complementary to others that already exist, it is not intended to replace them.

Its trial will be used to find out whether it is safe and whether or not it develops serious side effects’.

Covid patch to be tested on healthy volunteers

This potential new weapon against the coronavirus will be tested on 26 healthy volunteers.

First results are expected by June.

If the phase 1, 2 and 3 clinical trials are satisfactory, the final vaccine will be available in 2025 at the earliest.
