Covid-19 Vaccine Animal Trials DID Happen

So for today’s VERY VERY short Medium article, I’ll be discussing the online false claim spread by AV’s, anti-science and pseudoscientific individuals which are “animal trials were never conducted”, for the record they were conducted, as the proof will be in this article from peer-reviewed studies.

➡ The animal studies

➡ Conclusion
As you can see this false claim of the animal trials not being done has been fully been debunked and they DID take place. All animals survived these clinical trials and were all well after these. I hope this helps end the falsehoods surrounding this subject.
