This company is doing its research and trials on the classic vaccine. Novavax undoubtedly has a name in the pharmaceutical industry for its vaccines. In the case of the Covid-19 vaccine, the research continues.

Which one is the best?

All these firms are well known and can turn out to be profitable investments. To choose the best out of three, classic vaccines would be the best. If we talk about the mRNA vaccines, although the technique is new and has chances of being successful, yet none of the vaccines of this technique have been approved until now. The closing down of the trials of the adenovirus vaccines has brought them to a standstill. This has happened because some illnesses occurred in the volunteers.

When we talk about Novavax, it has produced some of the finest vaccines and this is why there are higher hopes from this company. This is what makes the stocks of this company a more favorable option to invest in. Also, the side effects of the trials done so far have not shown any adverse effects and so, the hopes of discovering a fully working vaccine from this company are high.
