Out of the three vaccines being tested on humans, the Adenovirus is already in Phase 2 while the others remain in Phase 1 of the testing stage. It typically takes between 10 to 15 years to get a Vaccine out but Health Organisations across the world are hoping to reduce this to one year due to the urgency of eradicating the COVID-19 virus.
