Oxford jab: How many doses will people need of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine?


The Oxford vaccine doesn’t require the same storage protocols as Pfizer’s, which needs specified -70C fridges.

Hospitals and GP surgeries can store the jab in a standard fridge, making it cheaper for other, less well off countries.

Early impressions of the vaccine suggested it was less effective than others coming from the US.

In studies, a two-dose regime delivered just over 60 percent protection, while a half then full dose delivered 90.
