First 2 volunteers injected with Israeli virus vaccine, kicking off human trials


Human trials began Sunday for an Israeli COVID-19 vaccine candidate, as the first two volunteers were inoculated. Segev Harel, 26, received the first dose at the Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan, while 34-year-old doctoral student Anar Ottolenghi was given an injection at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem. The two will remain at the hospitals for the next 24 hours so doctors can closely monitor them. The vaccine, named Brilife vaccine, was developed by the Israel Institute for Biological Research.
