Oxford University is Ready to Further Test Corona Vaccine to Humans
Oxford University revealed that they were recruiting thousands of volunteers for the next stage of human trials of the corona virus vaccine. They claim that this vaccine is developing very well.
At least 10,260 adults and children will register. They also broadened the age range of people given specimen vaccines and involved a number of partner institutions throughout the UK.
The university began an initial trial in April, carrying out 1,000 immunizations.
“Clinical studies are progressing very well,” Andrew Pollard, head of the Oxford Vaccine Group, said in a statement quoted by AFP.

“We are now starting studies to evaluate how well the vaccine induces an immune response in older adults, and to test whether it can provide protection to the wider population.”
“This is a very difficult question to know exactly when we will have evidence that the vaccine works,” he said.
The university and pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca will produce the vaccine on the UK market in September.
