  • One million people receive experimental Chinese COVID-19 vaccine

The Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine candidate, called AZD1222 or ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, had been among the front-runners in global efforts to develop shots to protect against infection with the novel coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2.

"In emergency use, we now have used it on almost a million people".

According to the research, the adverse reactions were mild.

Among construction project employees, diplomats and students who went overseas after taking Sinopharm's vaccine, no one has been infected, it added.

"We've seen with previous vaccines over the course of the last 20 or 30 years, that there's sometimes misinformation, that misinformation is now predominately online and we've got to combat that, and persuade people that it's safe to take the vaccine".

The EU has been in talks with Moderna for its experimental COVID-19 vaccine at least since July.

The annual production capacity for the COVID-19 vaccine will top 300 million doses, according to the company. The researchers also stress that 240 participants were over the age of 70 and their immune responses were similar to younger people in this clinical trial as well as the results from the younger cohort from Phase I. This is a very important result given how older adults are one of the most-at-risk groups. The first interim results of efficacy readings for this trial are expected to be reported in the coming weeks.

Two other drugmakers, Pfizer and Moderna, this week reported preliminary results from late-stage trials showing that their COVID-19 vaccines were nearly 95% effective.

After getting permission to use the experimental vaccine in China, the pharmaceutical company Can Sino Biologics announced that it has also received special permission to apply the experimental vaccine to Chinese army personnel.

AstraZeneca and Oxford's vaccine works differently than the one created by Pfizer and Moderna. A day before this, Moderna declared her vaccine to be 94.5 percent effective.

It's unclear which vaccine Liu referred to, and Sinopharm was not immediately available to comment. "That is nearly to the level of what we see with measles (vaccine), which is 98 per cent effective".
