    Anti-vaxxers will have a field day pointing out to mistakes in the trial and calling into question the whole thing, especially pointing out that they use chimps' adenovirus.

    "Trusting their own test results, the Oxford trial team was granted permission by the regulator MHRA to reduce the dose of the vaccine injected into participants from this batch.

    However, Reuters have reported that from documents published in The Lancet journal show that Oxford researchers had made an error in their testing.

    IRBM/Advent told the news agency that the measuring mishap was “the result of a change in the testing method.”

    The Lancet documents showed that a common emulsifier had been used in the mixing of the vaccine which meant it interfered with the ultraviolet-light meter used by the institution to test its strength.

    As a result, the participants in the trial received a much lower dose of the vaccine when Oxford scientists believed they were administering full doses.

    The half doses when followed up with another full dose booster, were 90 per cent effective and much higher than the 62 per cent of the two full doses, despite not being tested on anyone over-55."

    Oxford vaccine mix up came from scientists misreading the strength of Italian manufacturers' supply

    It will still be ok for the 3rd world ( but unlikely good enough to allow international travel).

    Orders are past 30 days cooling off period, so no.

    The paperwork has been submitted to the regulator.

    Looks like the Oxford / AstraZeneca will be certified on Monday after all the trials and tribualtions it has been through however the latest statement by their chief executive still doesn't fill me with confidence:

    “We think we’ve figured out the winning formula to maximise the protection offered”
    I would rather hear 'we know' than 'we think'
