Oxford professor Sir John Bell noted encouraging progress is being made on the coronavirus vaccine developed at the university. While speaking to Jon Snow on Channel 4, professor Bell claimed scientists may have enough data to understand whether the vaccine works by as early as autumn this year. After a successful readout, scientists would be able to quantify how effective the vaccine is and move on to the next stage.
When asked about how quickly members of the public could get the vaccine Professor Bell said: “As you may have spotted there is a wide range of views on this subject.
“I am hopeful we are going to start to get a readout early in the autumn as to whether or not this vaccine works or not.”
Professor Bell then went into greater details of the factors that impact the likelihood of this happening.
