Queensland COVID-19 research

  • Can a new modified BCG-based tuberculosis vaccine also help protect against COVID-19?

    April 2021

    JCU researchers are exploring the possibility of improving their modified BCG (Bacille Calmette-Guérin) vaccine strain to protect front-line health workers and other vulnerable populations against COVID-19. BCG is the widely used vaccine against tuberculosis and has been associated with reduced rates of COVID-19. By understanding the mechanisms on how BCG mediates protection against viral diseases, such as COVID-19, they will be able to develop an improved strain of BCG.
