The director of the project added that in the third phase they are seeking to assess the effectiveness of Fakhra vaccine.

Dr. Karimi noted that the first two phases of the clinical trial showed that Fakhra had no serious side effects, stressing that the locally manufactured vaccine, which is developed in the Iranian Defense Ministry, is one of the safest vaccines.

According to him, “The Fakhra vaccine creates adequate immunization in people,” adding that, the vaccine “was able to produce enough antibodies in the body that these antibodies can neutralize the Coronavirus.”

He declared that the Fakhra vaccine platform is based on the killed virus.
