“The design on the Moderna vaccine was really to protect against illness, COVID-19, and that’s a little bit different than infection,” Kalams said. “We think that they’re the same thing, but there’s infection with the virus, SARS-CoV2, and a lot of people are completely asymptomatic and they can spread it to somebody else, and some people get really, really sick.”
Early on, the goal of Vanderbilt researchers wasn’t to prevent infection. It was to prevent illness.
“How do you protect grandma? How do you protect the 80-year-old with lung disease from dying even if they get infected maybe they’ll have a milder illness? So that’s how the vaccine trial was designed.” he explained.
I'm totally with you on the need for Vyrologix to treat the disease at the different phases. And who knows, it might even have a prophylaxis effect like the anecdotal info about none of the HIV trial participants contracting COVID.
I just worry that all the people thinking once they get a vaccine they are free to do anything they want with a false sense of security.
