January 5th – Comprehensive report: On January 4, 2021 local time, the United Kingdom began to vaccinate people against the coronavirus vaccine developed by Oxford University in cooperation with AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, which is the second vaccine approved by British regulators.
The first vaccinated was an 82-year-old man at Oxford University Hospital.
The Oxford-Athleca coronavirus vaccine was officially approved by the British Drug and Health Products Administration (MHRA) on December 30, 2020.
The UK has been vaccinated on a large scale starting on January 4, 2021.
The first vaccinated against Oxford vaccine was Brian Pinker, an 82-year-old dialysis patient, who was vaccinated at the Oxford University Hospital in the United Kingdom.
Pinker said, “I am very happy to receive the vaccine today, and I am very proud of this vaccine developed in Oxford.” In my opinion, this is the only way to return to normal life.
In December 2020, the vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer and the German biotechnology company became the first coronavirus vaccine approved in the United Kingdom.
British Health Secretary Hancock said recently that the number of vaccines in the UK has exceeded 1 million doses.
According to the report, many experts believe that the vaccines of Oxford University and AstraZeneca will be the key to turning the epidemic around, because unlike the products developed by Pfizer and Modner in the United States, it needs to be stored at very low temperatures.
Recently, the coronavirus epidemic has continued to spread in the UK, and the number of new infections in the country has exceeded 50,000 for seven consecutive days.
British Prime Minister Johnson announced on the 4th that from January 5 to mid-February, England will enter a “lockdown” again, and said that the next few weeks will be the “most difficult” time.
Earlier, Scotland and Wales made similar prevention and control decisions.
At the same time, the Northern Ireland government is discussing countermeasures.
