US Army Creates Vaccines Against All Variants of COVID and SARS

Scientists at the Walter Reed Military Research Institute are expected to announce that they have created a vaccine that is effective against all COVID-19 and SARS variants, including Omicron, in the coming weeks, Defense One reported.

The military laboratory received the first DNA sequence of covid-19 virus in early 2020 and spent the next two years researching, Defense One report.

Walter Reed’s branch of infectious diseases soon chose to focus on inventing a vaccine that could prove effective against all variants, not just the original.

The vaccine lab finally completed animal testing in early 2021 with positive results, and phase 1 human trials ended in December. Human trials have already tested the vaccine. against Omicron variant and also positive the results, Dr. Kayvon Modjarrad, director of Walter Reed’s infectious diseases branch, told Defense One.

Walter Reed’s Spike Ferritin Nanoparticle COVID-19 (SpFN) vaccine uses a ball-shaped protein with 24 sides, allowing scientists to attach spikes of multiple coronavirus strains to different sides of the protein, Defense One news.

“It is exciting to get to this point for our entire team and I think for the entire army,” Modjarrad said.

“With Omicron, there is really no way to get rid of this virus. You won’t be able to avoid it,” he added. “So I think pretty soon either the whole world will be vaccinated or already infected.”

The next step in this process will be to see how the vaccine interacts with people who are already vaccinated or infected with the virus, Defense One reported.

“We need to evaluate it in a real-world setting and try to understand how the vaccine works for a much larger number of people who have already been vaccinated with something else… or have gotten sick,” says Modjarrad. .
