World’s First Vaccine Against RSV ‘Could Be Ready Within Months’

Fact checked

Scientists have announced that the world’s first vaccine against the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) could be ready in a matter of months

RSV is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms in adults and older healthy children.

As the virus can be more dangerous for babies and very young children, the new vaccine will target pregnant women in their latter stages of pregnancy with the aim of providing their babies with protection from birth.

Big phrama company GlaxoSmithKline say they are is now just months away from publishing results which it expects will show that its latest RSV jab will be safe and effective.

MSN reports: Data is due in early 2022, and the vaccine is expected to be approved and in use by next winter.

Dr Jamila Louahed, the vice-president of vaccine research and development at GSK, told The Telegraph that the pharmaceutical company has been working towards this moment for decades, and is now on the verge of a breakthrough.

“We have to wait for the data to be certain, but I am quite comfortable saying there is a high probability that the vaccine will work,” she said.

The jab is a traditional vaccine, a sub-unit protein design which mimics the virus itself. This method is used for many other diseases, such as Hepatitis B, and there will be two forms for the two susceptible populations.

Infants will be protected from birth because the vaccine is given to pregnant women in their third trimester, and antibodies made by the mother will be passed to the child in the womb via cord blood in the umbilical cord and placenta.

“For the baby, the burden of disease starts very early, so as soon as the baby’s born he can be infected with RSV,” Dr Louahed said.

“It’s an innovative approach where immunisation of the mother, at a time where they don’t have any risk, can really protect the baby as soon as possible.”


  1. “We have to wait for the data to be certain, but I am quite comfortable saying there is a high probability that the vaccine will work,” she said.

    Yeah, roll up pregnant women, this is gonna save your baby…

  2. There are no viruses and thus every toxic vaccine has a 0% chance of protecting you from anything . My baby is almost 4 months and hasn’t “caught” anything . The only thing that has gone in his system is breast milk so he has nothing to detox which is what “the flu” actually is . The body healing

  3. Yet another virus that they have failed to develop a safe vaccine for for what 60 years and suddenly and miraculously they develop a gene therapy to do the job no doubt with a similar ‘safe’ profile to the covid jabs. Shame on anyone who falls for it and takes it – you deserve what you will no doubt get

    • Article claims this is a traditional vaccine, not gene therapy. But I share your concerns. When did humans become so fragile and susceptible to common diseases? How did the billions of people ever survive without ever more vaccinations?

      • they haven’t managed a traditional one in 60 years either ……. vaccinations have a place – for conditions which are serious and where they have a safe profile both individually and in combination with other vaccines and common drugs / treatments. Currently they are failing on all counts

    • You’re not buying, but your government is and they will make sure that you get your drugs. If not voluntary then with force and coercion.
