The Covid-19 vaccine being developed at the University of Oxford is safe and induces an immune reaction, findings of the first phases of the study suggest.
But researchers warned “there is still much work to be done” before the extent to which it would protect the population against coronavirus would be known.
Researchers say their tests have revealed that the jab could provide double protection against Covid-19.
It also induces strong immune responses in both parts of the immune system – provoking a T cell response within 14 days of vaccination, and an antibody response within 28 days.

Outside experts called the results important and promising, but called for the full release of the data.
