In the two different dose regimens vaccine efficacy was 90% in one and 62% in the other.

There were no hospitalised or severe cases in anyone who received the vaccine

Large safety database from over 24,000 volunteers from clinical trials in the UK, Brazil and South Africa, with follow up since April.

Crucially, vaccine can be easily administered in existing healthcare systems, stored at ‘fridge temperature’ (2-8 °C) and distributed using existing logistics.
