  • United Kingdom ramps up vaccine research, manufacturing spending

The team developing the vaccine says once available it will be a low-cost, very, very extensively available vaccine as soon as possible.

Experts have commended the study as encouraging signs for a vaccine now undergoing human trials.

Mr Sharma continued: "This means that if the vaccine is successful AstraZeneca will work to make 30 million doses available by September for the United Kingdom as part of an agreement for over 100 million doses in total".

The experimental vaccine for Coronavirus, known as ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, developed by the Researchers at Oxford University is one of the front runners in the global race.

He said so far the government had invested £47 million in the Oxford and Imperial vaccine programmes, and announced a further £84m in new funding "to help accelerate their work".

"But if, and it is a big if, a successful vaccine is available later this year, we will need to be in a position to manufacture that to scale and quickly", he added.

Dr Katrina Pollock, Clinical Research Fellow in Vaccinology, who will be leading the work at Imperial's Hammersmith campus, said: "This is the first-in human trial for this candidate vaccine and an important step towards developing a safe and effective vaccine against the novel coronavirus".

He told the briefing: "In spite of the tireless efforts of our scientists, it is possible we may never find a successful coronavirus vaccine".

The UK Vaccine Manufacturing and Innovation Centre will be capable of producing 70 million vaccine doses within four to six months of opening its permanent facility at Harwell campus in Oxfordshire, the centre said in a statement.

Mr Sharma meanwhile announced tens of millions of pounds in extra funding to develop a coronavirus vaccine, which could see 30 million doses available in Britain by September.

The director of the National Institute of Health says no corners will be cut in the search for a vaccine - which is going on here in Montana - and there's encouraging news about a potential vaccine now being tested on humans and monkeys.

Oxford's Adrian Hill says that if it works the vaccine has another important benefit, "this is not a hugely hard vaccine to make".
