People urged to take part in Covid vaccine clinical trials

Public participation has been urged in the third phase of clinical trials for a Covid-19 vaccine.

Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) chief executive Ausamah Al Absi stressed the importance of supporting the efforts of the National Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus, noting that taking part in the vaccine trial is necessary to ensure reaching a secure vaccine as soon as possible.

“The whole world is eagerly waiting for a solution to Covid-19 in order to restore the pre-pandemic life,” Mr Al Absi said, noting that this could be achieved only through the participation of the citizens and residents in phase III clinical trials for a Covid-19 inactivated vaccine, conducted under the supervision of a specialised medical team.

He emphasised that everyone is responsible for finding a successful vaccine that would benefit entire humanity.

He pointed out that his participation has encouraged many LMRA officials and directors to volunteer, adding that taking the candidate vaccine is a national duty.

He affirmed that the vaccine is secure and procedures are clear, paying tribute to the medical staff working at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre for the tremendous humanitarian efforts they are making.
