    Red face Some new info about SV* Vaccine.

    Hey guys I just thought I should share.

    Currently two companies and one university have had quite a few breakthroughs this year and last with developing a vaccine. I have listed some press about their breakthroughs below, there is nothing to graphic besides medical terms and the words v* and d*.

    *Possible trigger warnings*

    Here is some info on Vaxarts trials: https://www.precisionvaccinations.co...igh-dose-group

    Takada Trials: https://www.healio.com/infectious-di...e-up-to-1-year

    This is exciting! thanks! but...I had a thought - would we have to GET the sv* to become immune to it ? that scares me, especially if its only like 98% effective!

    So just wanted to point something out. Norovirus, while horrible is not really something most adults have to worry about. By the time you reach adult hood you likely have already had it and are protected against getting/if you do get it you will be far less sick. (If you think back to one REALLY bad stomach bug you had, that was probably norovirus).

    Most stomach viruses that you get as an adult are from rotavirus, which much like the common cold mutates incredibly fast, and is not really something that they could reliably develop a vaccine for.

    That being said, this vaccine for norovirus could be good for young children, or those with compromised immune systems (think pregnant woman, or those with chronic illness).

    As for if you would have to get the SV, I didn't read the papers but probably not. With most vaccines, the side effects need to be less than the symptoms of the illness you are trying to prevent. Even more so if it is a vaccine that is routinely given (so pretty much all the required vaccines that kids get, pneumonia and flu vaccines would fall in this category). They likely are just exposing your body to a protein found on the surface of the norovirus, and not the actual virus it's self. And while us here may think of SV as the worst thing ever, in the medical community it is pretty benign, meaning symptoms beyond pain at injection site likely would disqualify it from passing FDA approval.
    There are some vaccines that are dangerous/can make you sick (in particular I am thinking of Yellow Fever), but those typically given only if needed (like if you are traveling to an area where there is Yellow Fever), and still have fewer risks than the actual disease (ie. temporary kidney failure, as opposed to death).

    I don't mean to be rude (really i do not) but i believe you have it the opposite way around, everything i have read was that rotavirus affected mostly children (that's why we have a vaccine for them) and only affected adults with minimal symptoms. Noro develops a new strain every so often and can affect anyone of any age and immune response is only about 6 months to a year.
