Oxford University AstraZeneca Vaccine

AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine success

Congratulations to our neighbours on the science park, AstraZeneca and Oxford University for their success in developing a COVID-19 vaccine. It’s great to see British science excelling and in these difficult times, we’re now able to see a way out of the pandemic.

The vaccine has had a bumpy road with rumours of deaths around their trials and suspected side affects but thankfully none of these were true and finally on 30th December 2020 it was given MHRA approval and 100 million doses are now being produced for the UK.

AstraZeneca and Oxford University should be highly praised for their efforts over the past year in developing a vaccine which is effective and produced at cost, not making a large profit from such a global crisis.

It’s been a long road and a tough Christmas for everyone but the end is coming, lets hope we can celebrate Easter normally.
