"OUR DOMESTIC VACCINE SPEED UP"
Prof. Dr. Unal's statements are as follows:
If there is one good thing among all the bad things about corona, it is that our local vaccine has accelerated. Our local vaccine will hopefully pass all these steps and be made to our citizens as licensed in April-May.
It is very successful in the works done so far. No significant side effects so far. How successful it is will be evaluated 14 days after the second dose of vaccination. According to the results obtained here, it will start Phase-2 studies, so our local vaccines continue successfully. One is well ahead. The others are about to take their places after him.
"OVER 60 PERCENT PROTECTION IS ENOUGH"
It was decided by experts that 60 percent protection was sufficient in the corona epidemic. Thereupon, the rates have already begun to be developed. We can guess that it will be successful because there is a protection of over 90 percent in the vaccines announced so far.
"NO SIGNIFICANT SIDE EFFECTS IN THE VACCINES IN PHASE-3"
One of the important factors during all these studies is to monitor the side effects that will occur. Fortunately, no major side effects have been detected in any of the vaccines that have completed or are about to complete the leading Phase-3 so far.
