Animal research will undeniably play a pivotal role in the development of a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci explained this recently during a White House briefing. However, many Americans are likely unaware research in a variety of species led to vaccines to protect us from a host of infectious disease threats. Mice and monkeys were involved in the development of a polio vaccine in the 1950s. And just last year, studies in nonhuman primates led to an Ebola vaccine that is incredibly effective.
To educate the public about this important topic and assist the research community in doing the same, Americans for Medical Progress created this brief video that explains in detail how time-and-time again, animal studies led to safe and effective vaccines.
