COVID-19 vaccine is about to enter its first stage of human testing

19 June 2020

UQ’s promising COVID-19 vaccine is about to enter its first stage of human testing. 

Thank you to our incredible UQ team for getting so far, so quickly – we’re all hoping for great success. Thanks also to the many small and large donors who have contributed to the vaccine’s development, and our partners at the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, CSL, the @QueenslandGovernment and @AusGov.

UQ partner @NucluesNetworkBrisbane is now recruiting 120 Queenslanders to volunteer for Phase 1 human testing of UQ’s promising COVID-19 vaccine. 

The Phase 1 trial is not about giving someone the actual virus – you are in no danger of infecting anybody and there is only a very small risk of side effects.
