Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Paul Stoffels says the pharmaceutical giant is making good progress on development of a vaccine against COVID-19 “and we are now close to selecting a candidate vaccine which we can bring forward for pre-clinical and clinical testing.”

Dr. Stoffels told Yahoo Finance large scale testing is scheduled to start in November. J&J is working with U.S. regulators to finish pre-clinical work before testing begins.

“It has to be very safe and effective and that’s why we need some time to test,” Stoffels said.

“I am pretty comfortable that within 12 months we will be in a different situation and probably will be able to start vaccinating people,” Stoffels predicted.

In the meantime he says prevention and social distancing are the best precautions to keep people from becoming ill.

  1. I am not a fan of ‘predictions’. Why 56 percent? Why not 50 ? or 60 ? WHY NOT just admit that we do not know ?
