Oxford Covid-19 vaccine - your questions answered on efficacy, safety and more

Britain has become the first country in the world to approve the Covid-19 vaccine developed by Oxford and AstraZeneca.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced that 530,000 doses will be available for rollout from Monday.

The UK has ordered 100 million doses of the Oxford University vaccine, enough to vaccinate 50 million people.

Writing exclusively in the Mirror, Mr Hancock said the Oxford vaccine "is much better suited" to reach care homes, as it doesn't need to be stored at very cold temperatures, and he will put care home residents and staff "at the front of the queue".

It is the second vaccine to be approved by the UK medicines regular, after the Pfizer-BioNTech jab was given emergency use authorisation earlier this month.Follow the Official Rokna NEWS Telegram Channel For More and fresh NEWS.
