How long will it be until Novavax is ready for use?

Trial results for the next COVID-19 vaccine are 'promising' but not yet complete, says the head of the TGA 

Talks are progressing on securing a third COVID-19 vaccine, produced by Novavax, which could be available by June, says the head of Australia's drugs watchdog the TGA.

Adjunct Professor John Skerritt said Novavax vaccine trials were showing "very promising early results" but they were not yet complete and the company still had to establish large-scale manufacturing arrangements. 

"I think that we probably are still, sadly, a couple of months away — June — before we will get the Novavax data," he told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday.
