While the world is making monumental changes in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, a vaccine is being worked on in Canada.

And now, a Saskatchewan coronavirus vaccine is officially in the testing stages.

Back in January 2020, it was announced that the University of Saskatchewan received permission from the Public Health Agency of Canada to start working on a vaccine for COVID-19.

While it could take up to a year to complete, CJWW has confirmed with the University of Saskatchewan’s Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization-International Vaccine Centre that the vaccine is now being tested on animals.

He also added that as they are now a few weeks away from finishing research stages, he is positive the vaccine will work.

This massive milestone comes just after an announcement that the Saskatchewan research team was granted almost $1 million to develop the coronavirus vaccine.

Numbers of infected individuals are on the rise and as of March 12, the first child in Canada was diagnosed with COVID-19 in Calgary. »
