Will there be a swallow vaccination against Corona soon?


The Israeli-American company Oramed, based in Jerusalem, is currently developing a new corona vaccine. Instead of being injected, it should simply be swallowed, reports the Jerusalem Post. The oral vaccination is currently still being tested on animals, but the trials will start on humans as early as April, Oramed boss Nadav Kidron told the newspaper.

The oral vaccine is said to have several advantages: In contrast to the vaccines from Biontech / Pfizer and Moderna, the oral vaccine is said to provide better protection against virus variants. This is because the tablet targets three corona structural proteins instead of the single spike protein like the current vaccines. On the other hand, there tend to be fewer side effects with drugs taken orally, explains Kidron.
