The first Covid 19 vaccines are likely to be incomplete, says Kate Bingham, president of the UK Vaccine Task Force. They also said that they may not work efficiently at all. ‘First-generation vaccines are likely to be incomplete. It may not work for everyone for a long time, ‘she added.
‘We do not know when an effective vaccine will be available. There should be no complacency or over-optimism, “said Bingham in a statement published in The Lancet Medical Journal. They noted that the focus is on vaccines for people over 65 and that many of these vaccines are likely to fail.
Meanwhile, there are reports that Covid 19 vaccine will be available in the UK by next month. The vaccine, developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca, will be available in early November, the Sun newspaper reported, citing a leading London hospital. The hospital has been instructed to prepare for the distribution of the first batch of wax by November 2, the report said. The Telegraph reports that the British government is acting on the understanding that the second wave of Covid will be more deadly than the first.
