HELP SUPPORT the Development of a SAFE and EFFECTIVE COVID-19 Vaccine for Children and Pregnant Women
NuGenerex Immuno-Oncology, Inc.’s (NGIO’s) proprietary Ii-Key technology offers a SAFE rapid path to human protection from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the long-term safety profile of Ii-Key vaccines enables NGIO to rapidly develop COVID vaccines for children, adolescents, and pregnant women.
Last Chance For Children’s (LCFC) Mission is to help save children’s lives anywhere in the world. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are now focusing our efforts to help eradicate this virus so we could safely and effectively vaccinate children in need.
Why do we need a COVID-19 Vaccine for Children and Pregnant Women?
Children’s lives have been completely disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. To date, none of the vaccines against COVID-19 are approved by the FDA for use in children under 12 years old or pregnant women.
The current vaccines approved for emergency use did not enroll children nor pregnant women in their original clinical trials, so data on the safety of these vaccines in these populations is sorely lacking. As pregnant women have a 70% increased risk of severe COVID disease, a safe vaccine is desperately needed. And even though children do not generally get severe COVID, the lack of a vaccine is keeping kids out of school, limiting social interaction, and potentially leaving many kids behind. Plus, if we want to reach herd immunity necessary to eradicate the pandemic, we need to vaccinate kids.
