Important announcement … an upgraded version of the AstraZeneca vaccine?


An official at AstraZeneca in Austria said in an interview that it is possible that an upgraded version of the company’s vaccine to prevent Covid-19 disease intended to combat the strain that was documented in South Africa will be ready by the end of this year.

She said that the studies indicating so far that the current vaccine is less effective against the virus documented in South Africa “are so scant that no final conclusions can be drawn from them.”

She added, “At the same time AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford have started modifications of the vaccine for the South African strain, and we expect it to be ready by the end of the year if needed.”
