Oxford vaccine up to 90% effective and costs just £3 per dose – BBC News

A vaccine developed by scientists at the University of Oxford appears set to transform the battle against coronavirus across the globe.

In initial trials the vaccine gave 70% protection against Covid but that could rise to as high as 90% by adjusting the dose. The UK government has already ordered 100 million doses of the vaccine.

While other vaccines have reported even higher protection the Oxford one is far cheaper – at around £3 per dose – and far easier to store, which is crucial for delivering it quickly and effectively around the world.
