@suricrasia First time NDP formed official opposition

mRNA vaccines

Promising HIV vaccines being tested for the first time in decades

I think PreP and PEP came out in that time? Could be wrong

@suricrasia (also I love the fact that when I was posting about one of those HIV vaccines on Twitter someone from ANOTHER teamwork and HIV vaccine said that there institute also had one in testing, so I believe there's three different HIV vaccines all based on completely different technology being tested in humans right now.)
