Who We Are

The Texas Healthcare and Bioscience Institute (THBI) is the Texas public policy voice for the healthcare and bioscience industry. 

Learn about THBI

With vaccine development moving so quickly, it is easy to understand why some people are asking whether a vaccine for Covid-19 will be safe and effective. But it is important to remember the very strict scientific and regulatory process vaccine developers must follow to bring a new product to patients, even during the current pandemic. Patient safety is central to the research and development of a vaccine. Like all new medicines or treatments, vaccines must pass a rigorous set of tests before being approved by independent, scientific experts at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
