Here’s where all the COVID-19 vaccine candidates currently stand

  Here’s where all the COVID-19 vaccine candidates currently stand More than a dozen frontrunners have reached late-stage clinical trials.Many of the other candidates, however, will fail somewhere along the vaccine development pipeline, which includes three rounds of clinical trials with increasingly large pools of volunteers to assess their safety, efficacy, and ability to prompt a response from the immune system. And for those that achieve authorization, there remain important questions that we’ll need more time and further research to answer, including how long the immunity they offer from COVID-19 lasts.

George and Brown sat out the only other meeting between Boston and Los Angeles last month.

Leonard has now missed eight games this season: one game with back spasms, two games with a mouth laceration, two games as part of health and safety protocols and three games with a leg contusion. He is averaging 26.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game, and he was named an All-Star starter last month.
