NEW YORK — Five more potential Ebola vaccines are to start clinical trials soon, World Health Organization assistant director-general Marie-Paule Kieny said Friday. Kieny also said WHO hopes that “a few hundred thousand doses” of Ebola vaccine will be available by the end of the first half of 2015.

She refused to be more specific about numbers and emphasized that she was speaking about a hope, not a plan.

This is a developing story.
