The World Health Organization says millions of doses of two experimental Ebola vaccines could be ready for use in 2015 and five more experimental vaccines will start being tested in March.Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny from the U.N. health agency told reporters that those doses could be available in 2015 if early tests proved that the two leading experimental vaccines were safe and provoked enough of an immune response to protect people from being infected with Ebola.GSK said it might be able to make about 1 million doses of their vaccine per month by the end of 2015, assuming that some logistical and regulatory hurdles can be overcome.Kieny also said five other possible Ebola vaccines should start being tested in March.Johnson & Johnson said this week it would start preliminary testing of its experimental Ebola vaccine against a strain of Ebola that is very similar to the one causing the current outbreak in West Africa.
