This past Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence met with researchers who are conducting clinical trials on a potential coronavirus vaccines. Moderna's coronavirus vaccine candidate entered Phase 3 of trials this week, which is the final phase that determines whether or not the vaccine is effective or not.

Wake Research is enrolling thousands of volenteers to be apart of the trial, and according to Dr. Wayne Harper, the lead researcher for Wake Research, who spoke to Pence and the FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn, "There's a lot of interest on the part of the public - a lot of interest." Additionally, Harper explains that they are focussing on enrolling health care workers and those persons who are more exposed to the virus throughout their daily lives.

Here's what he said, "We're trying to reach people who are exposed to the virus, and the reason is, if the vaccine is going to work, we need to see that they're exposed and see that it works, that they don't get COVID-19."

Pence said that people should be signing up for the trials, while at the same time praised the work scientists have done and the speed of which they have done it.

Pence - "I must say, I never fail to be moved in the way the American people have stepped up for their neighbors, stepped up for the most vulnerable, and not hesitated to do what's necessary to help our nation meet this moment."
