A survey, published Tuesday, with 77 epidemiologists, virologists, and infectious disease specialists participating, from some of the world’s leading academic institutions in 28 different countries, was conducted by the People’s Vaccine Alliance. The survey concluded that COVID-19 mutations may render current vaccines ineffective, within a year, CNBC reports.
About 33% of those responding to the survey estimated that the current COVID vaccines would be rendered ineffective in less than nine months.
However, about 12.5% of those surveyed opined that COVID mutations would not render current vaccines ineffective.
While about 66% of those surveyed agreed that current vaccine effectiveness had only, “a year or less before the virus mutates to the extent that the majority of first-generation vaccines are rendered ineffective and new or modified vaccines are required,” said CNBC.
The survey was conducted by the People’s Vaccine Alliance — whose mission statement includes: “Our best chance of ending this pandemic is to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to COVID-19 vaccines, tests and treatments. But pharmaceutical monopolies could leave countries in the global south waiting up to 2023 for widespread vaccination. This threatens everyone as no-one is safe until everyone is safe,” according to peoplesvaccine.org.
