Micaela Serafini
This is a game changer. It's a vaccine that fits much more with what we believe are the needs in Africa. This (initiative) came out of frustration. We see so many vaccines that are difficult to implement in the field.feedback

"As scientists, we should be watching this outbreak and the effectiveness of any control measures,". "We don't have a vaccine available for H7N9 in humans, but we do have effective antivirals.". "So far, the virus does not spread well between humans,". "As members of the public, who do not seek out live poultry from markets in China, we have almost nothing to worry about from H7N9 right now.".feedback

Carissa Etienne

I would like to emphasize that our work on this front is not yet done. We can not become complacent with this achievement but must rather protect it carefully. Measles still circulates widely in other parts of the world, and so we must be prepared to respond to imported cases. It is critical that we continue to maintain high vaccination coverage rates, and it is crucial that any suspected measles cases be immediately reported to the authorities for rapid follow-up.feedback

Walter Orenstein

All adults should be vaccinated against influenza annually, receive a booster of a tetanus vaccine every 10 years, two different types of pneumococcal vaccine when they turn 65, and a vaccine to prevent shingles when they reach age 60.feedback

Sandra Fryhofer

It's a double whammy for those without insurance. They don't have insurance coverage if they get sick and they don't have insurance coverage to pay for vaccinations that can help them stay well. The very young, the old, or anyone with a weakened immune system - including pregnant women - don't respond as well. Healthy people are more likely to make the most protective antibodies, and that's another reason why it's important for them to get vaccinated. They need to stay protected so they won't spread infection to others who are not so healthy and could die if they get sick.feedback

Walter Orenstein

All pregnant women should receive influenza vaccine, which protects them and their newborns, as well as a dose of a vaccine that protects their newborns against whooping cough.feedback

Bernadette Murgue - World Health Organization

There are about 40 vaccine candidates, five are entering or about to enter in phase 1, clinical trial for safety and ability to induce an immune response.feedback

Margaret Chan - World Health Organization

The rapidly expanding geographical distribution of these outbreaks and the number of virus strains currently co-circulating have put WHO on high alert. We cannot allow so many countries to be without tools. Remember, it takes four to six months to get the vaccine. We cannot afford to miss the early signals.feedback

Vaccines have been part of the fabric of our society for decades and are the most significant medical innovation of our time. Vaccines are safe. Vaccines are effective. Vaccines save lives.feedback

Donald J. Trump

But I want smaller doses over a longer period of time. Same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump – I mean, it looks just like it's meant for a horse, not for a child, and we've had so many instances, people that work for me. ... [in which] a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back and a week later had a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic.feedback

Hope Hicks

The President-elect enjoyed his discussion with Robert Kennedy Jr. on a range of issues and appreciates his thoughts and ideas. The President-elect is exploring the possibility of forming a commission on autism, which affects so many families; however no decisions have been made at this time. The President-elect looks forward to continuing the discussion about all aspects of autism with many groups and individuals.feedback

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

"President-elect Trump has some doubts about the current vaccine policies," "and he has questions about it. His opinion doesn't matter but the science does matter, and we ought to be reading the science, and we ought to be debating the science. And that everybody ought to be able to be assured that the vaccines that we have – he's very pro-vaccine, as am I – but they're as safe as they possibly can be."feedback

Karen Remley

Claims that vaccines are linked to autism, or are unsafe when administered according to the recommended schedule, have been disproven by a robust body of medical literature. It is dangerous to public health to suggest otherwise. There is no 'alternative' immunization schedule. Delaying vaccines only leaves a child at risk of disease for a longer period of time; it does not make vaccinating safer. Vaccines work, plain and simple.feedback

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

President-elect Trump has some doubts about the current vaccine policies, and he has questions about it. His opinion doesn't matter, but the science does matter, and we ought to be reading the science, and we ought to be debating the science.

Donald J. Trump

I'm not against vaccinations for your children, I'm against them in 1 massive dose. Spread them out over a period of time & autism will drop!feedback

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

President-elect Trump has some doubts about the current vaccine policy, and he has questions about it. He asked me to chair a commission on vaccine safety and scientific integrity. I said I would.feedback

Glen Nowak

There has been a lot of discussion in the past couple of years about (whether) physicians get enough training about vaccines and immunizations. This highlights the importance of provider education. It's easy to get people to have a visceral reaction to words like chemical or toxin.feedback

Kevin Pho

Anti-vaccine Cleveland Clinic doctor just made our jobs so much harder.feedback

Glen Nowak

When a doctor at a mainstream organization like the Cleveland Clinic writes something like this, it's very harmful and it's hard to contain. Having the name of a world-renowned institution to validate his claims makes it even more difficult for primary care doctors to dispel. Already, anti-vaccine sites are citing his post, with the added gravitas of the Cleveland Clinic.feedback

Kevin Pho

Time is at a premium, and having to spend that time dispelling fake health news only adds to the pressures primary care physicians face in a 15-minute office visit.feedback

Anne Dachel

I'm impressed. Neides is in family practice and he's not buying all the official denials.feedback

Daniel Neides

Why would any of us want to be injected with mercury if it can potentially cause harm? However, what I did not realize is that the preservative-free vaccine contains formaldehyde.feedback

Kevin Pho

When fake news is retracted, people often can't tell the difference between the truth and the myth.feedback

Marie-Paule Kieny - World Health Organization

While these compelling results come too late for those who lost their lives during West Africa's Ebola epidemic, they show that when the next outbreak hits, we will not be defenseless. The world can't afford the confusion and human disaster that came with the last epidemic.feedback

Jeremy Farrar

We have to get ahead of the curve and make promising diagnostics, drugs and vaccines for diseases we know could be a threat in the future. Had a vaccine been available earlier in the Ebola epidemic, thousands of lives might have been saved. My hope is that this success story provides the inspiration we need to make this happen and change the way the world prepares for epidemics.feedback

Marie-Paule Kieny - World Health Organization

I really believe that now we have a tool which would allow (us) to control a new outbreak of Ebola of the Zaire strain. It's the first vaccine for which efficacy has been shown.feedback

John Edmunds

When Ebola strikes again we will be in a much better position to offer help to affected communities, as well as protect the brave volunteers who help control this terrible disease.feedback

Jeremy Farrar

This trial, confirming the 100 percent efficacy of the rVSV Ebola vaccine, is a simply remarkable outcome. We've shown that by working collaboratively, across international borders and sectors, we can develop and test vaccines rapidly and use them to help bring epidemics to an end.feedback

Thomas Geisbert

One question that has not been adequately addressed, even in nonclinical studies with any Ebola virus vaccine, is with regard to durability – is the vaccine long-lasting? Is it still protective, for example, 2–3 years after the vaccination?feedback

Trevor Mundell - Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

What we'd like to see in about five years is that we would have two or three of the key pathogens from the WHO list of serious threats, where we now have a vaccine, which can be stockpiled at the level of hundreds of thousands or maybe a few million doses.feedback

John-Arne Rottingen - Norwegian Institute of Public Health

The Ebola vaccine studies during the Ebola outbreak were one of the few successes of the collective international response. The world managed to plan and conduct more than 15 clinical trials in less than an year. And this ring vaccination trial, with its innovative research design, managed to demonstrate efficacy for one of the vaccines.feedback

Manni Baez

For me, the end game is providing the folks at NIH with the resources they need to get them closer to finding a cure or a vaccine for this plague.feedback

Glenda Gray

The people of South Africa are making history by conducting and participating in the first HIV vaccine efficacy study to build on the results of the Thai trial. HIV has taken a devastating toll in South Africa, but now we begin a scientific exploration that could hold great promise for our country. If an HIV vaccine were found to work in South Africa, it could dramatically alter the course of the pandemic.feedback

Rick Scott

Until we have a vaccine, this is going to be something we're going to deal with. We're going to be active, and we've learned a lot.feedback

Isaac Adewole

They are armed, but look like normal people so they don't scare anyone.feedback

Alan Hinman

This justifies the approach of using a single dose to achieve wider coverage, given the fact that there's not enough of the vaccine to give to everyone.feedback

Dan H. Barouch

Current anti-retroviral drugs, although they're lifesaving, do not cure HIV. They merely hold it in check. We are trying to develop strategies to achieve ART-free, long-term viral suppression.feedback

Dan H. Barouch

If all the animals' viral loads had been undetectable, that would have been a home run. But the fact that all animals showed a reduction in viral load and three out of nine were undetectable, that's a solid base hit. It's definitely something that we can work from.feedback

Joann Ater

Children should also participate in all preventive health measure such as not smoking or using tobacco, HPV vaccine, wearing sun screen to prevent skin cancer, and following recommended adult cancer screening, such as Pap smears for young women.feedback

Kayvon Modjarrad

One of the groups is going to be given the Japanese encephalitis virus first and then wait a period of time and then get the Zika vaccine. Another group will get a yellow fever vaccine, wait a few months and then get a Zika vaccine.feedback

Anthony Fauci

We urgently need a safe and effective vaccine to protect people from Zika virus infection, as the virus continues to spread and cause serious public health consequences, particularly for pregnant women and their babies.feedback

Nearly 10,000 deaths of children under five years may have occurred due to declining health care, this crumbling health system. Six-hundred health facilities have stopped working, and a fifth of all vaccination centres and district vaccine stores remain closed.feedback

James Cherry

No child should go to Europe or the Philippines who hasn't had two doses of measles vaccine. It's just too risky.feedback

Jon Abramson

There are only two manufacturers of the vaccine and they are having some problems with production of the vaccine, and getting enough raw material of the polio virus.feedback

Philippe Duclos - World Health Organization

It's a serious inconvenience. By and large the two manufacturers... underestimated the challenges of scaling up their production when they made the pledge to WHO.feedback

Jon Abramson

Each time we hear that there's a further reduction in the amount that can be anticipated, we have to make further adjustments. My hope is this problem can be solved by 2018. But I can't promise that, obviously. It's not something we can control.feedback

Greg Elder - Doctors Without Borders

The idea is that this will set a model in place for other manufacturers to put their vaccines on the table.feedback

Philippe Duclos - World Health Organization

Of course some vaccines are more important in certain emergencies than in others. What we need is to rationalize, quickly, in each emergency, which ones are needed.feedback

Greg Elder - Doctors Without Borders

We're talking about a very specific cohort - refugees, displaced populations, people who have gone through a lot of trauma and have had to flee their homes.feedback

Shanelle Hall - UNICEF

We will be able to procure pentavalent vaccine to protect children ... for less than $1 a dose.feedback

Nancy Messonnier - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

It will be simpler now for parents to get their kids the HPV vaccine series, and protect their kids from HPV cancers.feedback

Dominique Legros - World Health Organization

So far, we have one experience of a large-scale campaign with a single dose - it was done in Bangladesh two years ago. It proved effective for six months.feedback

Dominique Legros - World Health Organization

The top priority, clearly, for those people affected by the hurricane is to give them access to safe water. That's the only way we can control cholera in the long term in Haiti and elsewhere. And for those people who are sick of cholera, of course, the top priority is to treat them and give them access to treatment. And that's a concern today, as you understood, because of the damage to the healthcare facilities.feedback

Dominique Legros - World Health Organization

The top priority clearly for those people affected by the hurricane is to give them access to safe water. That is the only way we can control cholera in the long term in Haiti and elsewhere.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

We've got the technologies, infrastructure, experience dealing with regulators in this field. All of that gives us a jumpstart.feedback

Anthony Fauci

We're not dependent on a company until you prove it works and then you need somebody to manufacture millions of doses.feedback

Anthony Fauci

If the infections die down, then it's going to take much longer to find out if it works.feedback

William Bleser

Some complementary and alternative medicine practitioners have anti-vaccine or vaccine-hesitant viewpoints.feedback

Tom Frieden - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Get a flu shot, no excuse not to get them. Getting a flu vaccine is important for all of us, for our own protection and for the protection of those around us who may be more vulnerable to flu, such as young children, people with certain chronic health conditions and the elderly.feedback

Rick Scott

Every minute that passes that Congress doesn't approve funding means more time is lost from researching this virus to find a vaccine to help pregnant women and their developing babies.feedback

Mark Feinberg

That's been a major deterrent to vaccine development, because you're always concerned about vaccine-induced pathology. That's a big safety hurdle that any vaccine developer would have to go through.feedback

Mark Feinberg

This has been a 30- or 40-year effort to get to where Novavax is, in terms of a candidate that goes into phase 3 trials. That's been a major deterrent to vaccine development, because you're always concerned about vaccine-induced pathology.feedback

Susan Rehm

Although the follow-up period was limited to four years, there was little decline in effectiveness in the years following vaccination.feedback

Richard Hatchett

To help protect people from Zika in the U.S. and abroad, we are aggressively pursuing the development of promising vaccine candidates around the world.feedback

Tarik Jasarevic - World Health Organization

The WHO Emergency Committee will reconvene in coming weeks (and) will re-evaluate the situation but we think that the outbreak is manageable if we can protect enough people with the vaccine.feedback

Peter Piot

Vaccine is the only way to control a yellow fever epidemic. This is where WHO should insist on accountability...they have to know how the vaccine is being used to know they are making the right decisions.feedback

Sylvia Burwell - Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

A delay in this stage of development will delay when a safe and effective Zika vaccine is available to the American public. These examples demonstrate the urgent need for the administration's request for $1.9 billion in emergency supplemental funding.feedback

John Hellerstedt

It's the perfect mix - local transmission in Florida, travel to Brazil, and we're at the height of mosquito season in Texas.feedback

Sylvia Burwell - Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

In addition, research and development of other vaccine candidates, diagnostics, therapeutics and (mosquito) vector control technologies may be constrained.feedback

Daniel Anderson

The nanoparticle goes inside of the cell and then releases this RNA, and then the RNA makes copies of itself and it also makes proteins that are antigens (inducing an immune response). So these are the same types of proteins you might get for a vaccine.feedback

Omar Khan

When there is an extraordinary need and you need something that is safe, then we have the ability to make that happen. So things like Zika or the recent Ebola outbreak, we can rapidly respond to that within seven days.feedback

France Bégin - UNICEF

Breast milk is a baby's first vaccine, the first and best protection they have against illness and disease. Making babies wait too long for the first critical contact with their mother outside the womb decreases the newborn's chances of survival, limits milk supply and reduces the chances of exclusive breastfeeding.feedback

Aman Bhakti Pulungan

We are in crisis right now. This is a medical emergency, and we have to overcome this.feedback

Pramono Anung

We can't be half-hearted with this vaccine problem, and yesterday the president decided to immediately restructure the [food and drug agency]. With this, we hope that this kind of thing won't be repeated.feedback

Harry M. Reid

Republicans have no desire to work with us to get a bipartisan Zika funding bill to the president – now, or any time in the future. It's all been a charade. Republicans are interested in one thing only: attacking Planned Parenthood.feedback

Anthony Fauci

We getting to the point where both the CDC and the NIH are actually running out of money, and we have important work to do.feedback

Bill Flores

The action is to go back to our communities and have a candid conversation about the challenges we face as a country. There's no need for us to try to cram a majority position down at this point.feedback

Lois Ramondetta

We actually know the majority of them can be prevented with the HPV9 vaccine that's out now.feedback

Anthony Fauci

If in the early part of 2017 we still have major outbreaks in South America and in the Caribbean, we may show that it's effective or not within a year. If the infections go way down the way Ebola went way down in west Africa when we were trying to test the vaccine, it may take three years to show that it works, or not.feedback

Dan H. Barouch

These two vaccine candidates both provided complete protection against Zika virus challenge in mice. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of Zika virus vaccine protection in an animal model. The protection was striking.feedback

Dan H. Barouch

We showed that a single dose of either a DNA vaccine or purified live attenuated (weakened) vaccine provided protection against Zika challenge in susceptible mice.feedback

Dan H. Barouch

There are plenty of unanswered questions, such as the extent to which immunity to other flaviviruses like dengue may or may not impact vaccine responses or protection. That is something that clearly needs to be explored.feedback

Gavin Screaton

We now need further studies to confirm these findings, and to progress towards a vaccine.feedback

Seth Berkley

Measuring the vaccine's impact in real life settings is what will ultimately help the health community assess the value of this vaccine in the fight against malaria along with other existing interventions.feedback

Matshidiso Moeti - World Health Organization

While WHO is working with partners and vaccine manufacturers to increase vaccine production and replenish the emergency stockpile currently being used for this outbreak, it is vital to interrupt transmission, especially in cross-border areas to rapidly bring this outbreak under control and halt further international spread.feedback

Peter Hotez

And if you think of a regulatory hurdle. It is a long way of saying, we are not going to have a vaccine in time for this epidemic.feedback

J. Joseph Kim - Inovio

We plan to dose our first subjects in the next weeks and expect to report phase I interim results later this year.feedback

Tarik Jasarevic - World Health Organization

Experts agreed to propose if necessary, if there is a shortage of vaccine, to divide the vaccine by five. One fifth of a dose according to their evidence would be sufficient to provide immunity for at least 12 months.feedback

Anthony Fauci

Vaccine research also continues in the laboratory, where scientists are investigating the use of potent antibodies that block a high percentage of global HIV strains from infecting human cells.feedback

Anthony Fauci

While we are making encouraging progress – new HIV infections have fallen by 35 percent globally since 2000 – the development of a safe and effective HIV vaccine would be the ultimate game-changer.feedback

Hal Rogers

This legislation will make dollars available to fight the disease now, prioritizing critical activities that must begin immediately, such as vaccine development and mosquito control. The legislation funds these efforts in a responsible way, using existing resources – including excess funding left over from the Ebola outbreak – to pay for it.feedback

Stephen L. Hoffman

This is an extraordinary change. They want a malaria vaccine that works.feedback

Leonardo Pereira

When a mother who refused the flu vaccine delivers, her newborn baby is more likely to contract influenza and more likely to require hospitalization compared to babies born to mothers who were vaccinated during pregnancy.feedback

Andrew Witty - GlaxoSmithKline

We think this is a strong solid quarter for the company, especially because we are seeing good, healthy performance across all three of our businesses – pharma, vaccine and consumer.feedback

Joël Calmet

It is an oral, life-attenuated vaccine that has the three sources of Polio: types 1, 2, 3. Now the pattern is changing and to prevent risks linked to type 2, the vaccine will include a dose of inactivated vaccine (IPV).feedback

Teresa Li

The government's policy is to accord priority to local children. We will closely monitor the utilisation of services by (non-resident children) and may adjust the quota or withhold new case bookings.feedback

Li Keqiang

At current our nation has 12, 000 drug wholesalers, 5, 000 manufacturing companies and greater than four hundred, 000 drug retailers. Regulatory targets are many, however there are few individuals on the bottom, making regulation troublesome. There aren't even 500 individuals with the aptitude to examine medicine. There are lifeless areas and blind zones for regulation and inspection.feedback

Li Keqiang

This vaccine safety case has drawn close attention, and shows there are many gaps in terms of regulation.feedback

Li Keqiang

This vaccine security case has drawn shut consideration, and exhibits there are lots of gaps when it comes to regulation.feedback

Anna P. Durbin

We don't believe that dengue antibodies are protective against Zika infection. So many people who previously had dengue are getting Zika.feedback

Anna P. Durbin

We were able to get 100 percent efficacy, which we were really thrilled about.feedback

Anna P. Durbin

We see some clinical signs and symptoms but not enough to make people sick.feedback

Stephen S. Whitehead

The U.S. government has made the vaccine materials and technology available for licensure across the world. We have several licensees come forward. There's the Butantan Institute in Brazil and they have an exclusive license for the product in Brazil. We also have Merck & Co in the U.S.feedback

Anna P. Durbin

Knowing what we know about this new vaccine, we are confident that it is going to work. And we have to be confident: Dengue is unique and if you don't do it right, you can do more harm than good.feedback

Matthew M. Davis

It is very difficult to put a specific number on how much vaccine refusals reduce a community's protection against disease. What this latest comprehensive review illustrates is that individuals who refuse vaccines not only put themselves at risk for disease. It turns out that they also put others at risk too – even people who have been vaccinated before, but whose protection from those vaccinations may not be as strong as it used to be.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

It is our ambition to slash years off the normal timeline required for a vaccine.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

We need to think about a Zika vaccine that is potentially going to be given to different age groups.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

We may end up with several vaccines that work very well and we are blessed with a choice.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

Because the Zika virus seems to be well-conserved at the genetic level that greatly improves the chances of success in developing a vaccine.feedback

Joseph Bresee

Flu activity this season started a bit later and has been lower so far than we've seen during the previous three seasons, but activity is still on the upswing and expected to continue for several weeks. Flu causes serious illnesses and deaths every year. This season, the CDC has received reports of hospitalizations and deaths in young, otherwise healthy people who were infected with influenza A H1N1, but not vaccinated.feedback

Joseph Bresee

This means that getting a flu vaccine this season reduced the risk of having to go to the doctor because of flu by nearly 60 percent. It's good news and underscores the importance and the benefit of both annual and ongoing vaccination efforts this season.feedback

Louis Macareo

Development of vaccine is a very long tedious and arduous process to demonstrate both efficacy as well as safety, and it will be premature right now to actually give hard predictions on how long that will take.feedback

Nial O'Reilly

We're joined by Dr Nicholas Jackson, head of research at Sanofi Pasteur.Thanks for being with us, your company is one of several now embarked on research for a vaccine, how great is the challenge to develop one that is effective, deliverable and safe to where it's needed?feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

Yes it will take years to develop a vaccine that's because we have to go through very careful steps to show that it is safe and effective.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

Well the virus does mutate, but actually when you look at the available genetic information the actual Zika virus is quite well conserved, it's about 95 percent, so it's only a small proportion of the virus's genetic code that is different. So that does make it a relatively easy target compared to some other viruses.feedback

Nial O'Reilly

But without this collaboration, and without an effective and safe vaccine. How serious could this epidemic, this outbreak of Zika become?feedback

Nial O'Reilly

This is an outbreak which could spread to Europe, because this virus is now present in the south of France, is that right?feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

It's a global challenge and is one that typically take could many years to do, but the WHO has made it very clear that Zika is an emergency on a global level that needs to dealt with internationally. So, we can respond to that for two reasons. First of all we have the technology and the expertise in house. We also have a wide infrastructure that has been put in place to deal with dengue for our dengue vaccine, so we get a jump start here by being able to tap into that and allow the vaccine development to be accelerated.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

The mosquitoes that could transmit and are transmitting Zika have been identified in southern Europe and across area of the United States, and that is what makes this frightening and if there is this association with these clinical complications it is going to be of great concern for public health.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

It will take years, but what is important is if we can collaborate globally, with organisations like the WHO in the regions with countries like Brasil, tapping into the global network of experience in Flavivirus we can cut years off the timeline.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

Dengue is a similar virus and belongs to the same family as Zika, this mosquito is highly domesticated it lives in your home, its under your kitchen table, it bites very aggressively and its taken dengue to a hundred countries around the world.feedback

Nial O'Reilly

And what about the potential for mutation of the virus. That would surely put you at a big disadvantage in terms of developing a vaccine?feedback

Nial O'Reilly

The target group is pregnant women, you obviously can't test on pregnant women so that again could be another factor which slows the research down?feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

Actually if the neurological disorder, Guillain-Barré syndrome, which causes ascending paralysis, if that is confirmed to be associated with Zika then we need a vaccine to prevent that disease as well, which would be all ages potentially and both genders. We certainly recognise the priority here is potentially women thinking of becoming pregnant, who would really benefit from a vaccine that prevents the disease.feedback

Alistair Campbell - Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co.

It's a public health good initiative, it's not necessarily a commercial initiative. Zika is something that has cropped up suddenly and may well dissipate, so there may not be a sustainable annual cohort of patients for vaccination.feedback

Ben Neuman

For most viruses, there are lots of ways to make a somewhat effective vaccine, but the most effective vaccines target several parts of the virus in different ways.feedback

Nicholas Jackson - Sanofi Pasteur

Sanofi Pasteur is responding to the global call to action to develop a Zika vaccine given the disease's rapid spread and possible medical complications. In addition to the serious possibility of congenital complications associated with Zika, investigations are also under way to assess another reported connection between Zika and a dangerous neurological disorder.feedback

Anna Padula - GlaxoSmithKline

We're concluding our feasibility studies as quickly as we can to see if our vaccine technology platforms might be suitable for working on Zika.feedback

Dilma Rousseff

While we do not have a vaccine against the Zika virus, the war must be concentrated on the elimination of breeding grounds for the mosquito. Getting rid of Zika is the responsibility of all of us.feedback

Dilma Rousseff

We're losing the battle against the mosquito. As long as the mosquito keeps reproducing, each and every one of us is losing the battle against the mosquito. So we have to mobilise so we do not lose this battle.feedback

Dilma Rousseff

As long as we don't have a vaccine against Zika virus, the war must be focused on exterminating the mosquito's breeding areas.feedback

Francis Collins - National Institutes of Health

With no vaccine or treatment currently available to prevent or treat Zika infection, the best way for individuals–and pregnant women in particular–to protect themselves is to avoid traveling to places where Zika is known to be spreading.feedback

Seth Berkley

New threats require smart solutions and our innovative financing agreement will ensure that we are ahead of the curve for future Ebola outbreaks.feedback

Andrew Witty - GlaxoSmithKline

While RTS,S (Mosquirix) on its own is not the complete answer to malaria, its use alongside those interventions currently available such as bed nets and insecticides would provide a very meaningful contribution to controlling the impact of malaria on children in those African communities that need it the most.feedback
