The new vaccine that they're talking about in the media now probably was tried on animals first. If you're talking about the same one or not or an
older one I don't know.
I guess it takes six shots over a period of time and works about 37 percent of the time.
What I heard was they took two groups of people. All the people in both groups were considered high risk for contracting HIV due to their lifestyle
and geographic locations.
One group was given the vaccine. The other was given a placebo that didn't do anything.
Over the course of a couple years they checked backed on the two groups and found the group that got the vaccine had about 40 percent fewer people
contract HIV in comparison with the other group where the people had contracted HIV at the normal rate.
So they didn't expose anyone directly, but they just studied people they basically knew were going to get it on their own anyway.
