WHO needs ‘more than press release’ on Oxford vaccine, says immunisations chief

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said it needs “more than a press release” about the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine in order to evaluate trial results.
Speaking at a WHO news conference on Friday, its immunisations director Dr Katherine O’Brien said: “What we have seen is a press release.
“And what is really the next most important step is that the data needs to be evaluated based on more than a press release.”
The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine was revealed on Monday to have an efficacy of up to 90% when half a dose was given, followed by a full one.
