HIV vaccine could become available by 2021

Researchers are ’optimistic’ an HIV vaccine could be available as soon as 2021. As per reports, there are three potential vaccines - known as HVTN 702, Imbokodo and Mosaico - that are currently entering final testing trials. Of the three, HVTN 702 is the oldest and is a derivative of an older vaccine known as RV144. Clinical trials found that RV144 reduced the rate of HIV infections by around 30%.
