One million doses of an Ebola vaccine will be produced by the end of 2015, the World Health Organization has announced.

It said “several hundred thousand” will be produced in the first half of the year.

And vaccines could be offered to health workers on the frontline in West Africa as soon as December 2014.

However, the WHO cautioned that vaccines would not be a “magic bullet” for ending the outbreak, while confirming that two leading vaccine candidates are already in human clinical trials, and another five experimental vaccines were also being developed.
