Five companies have shown promise in the vaccine race till date.

Moderna: has completed Phase 1 trials and Phase 2 trials are set to start. Moderna has been fast-tracking work with the National Institute of Health to develop a vaccine and is the first to share results on human trial testing of a potential Coronavirus vaccine.


Inovio Pharmaceuticals: Phase 2 trials are set for later this summer. Inovio continues to move rapidly through the early stages of the development of its COVID-19 vaccine.


Novavax: The Company is currently in the pre-clinical stage of the vaccine. Novavax plans to start human trials in May with preliminary results expected in July.


Johnson & Johnson: Phase 1 trials are planned for September 2020. If all goes accordingly, the vaccine could be ready “for emergency use” in early 2021.

Pfizer

: It is in the midst of clinical trials. Pfizer plans to ramp up clinical trials and subsequently launch a broad large-scale study with thousands of participants.
