The new Novavax vaccine is “very effective” against the Covid variant in the UK – BBC News




A fourth vaccine could soon be accepted in the UK, after trials showed it was particularly effective against the UK coronavirus variant. Novavax is a US vaccine being produced in Teeside in the UK. The British government has ordered 60 million doses. Meanwhile, the UK has stressed that existing vaccine supplies will not be suspended, despite shortcomings between AstraZeneca and the European Union. Nearly seven and a half million people have had at least one dose of the vaccine in the UK, which is much higher than in EU countries. The queue erupted when AstraZeneca said it would not be able to say all the doses promised to the EU in March. The EU has called for the diversion of some vaccines in the UK and warned that it could take legal action. France, Portugal and Germany are some of the EU states struggling to get enough vaccine supply. Vaccinations should be delayed before spreading can actually begin.
