SCRIPT

The World Health Organisation (WHO) received a donation by the government of Canada of 800 vials of an experimental candidate vaccine against Ebola, rVSV-ZEBOV, in Geneva Wednesday. The first shipment of 250 vaccines arrived Tuesday night in Switzerland and were stored at the Geneva University hospital Wednesday.

There are currently two experimental Ebola vaccines that WHO considers the “front runners” in the race to stop the transmission of the virus. The first vaccine was developed by British company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and the other by the government of Canada. WHO clinical trials involve 250 volunteers, half of whom will be tested in November in Lausanne. Meanwhile, trials are underway in the US, Oxford and Mali. The vaccines are expected to be used in West Africa in early January.
