“The AstraZeneca immunization will stay with us… up until the researchers give us obvious signs with regards to what we need to do,” he added.
This comes as Oxford University scientists dealing with another Covid immunization to battle the South African variation have today said they are cheerful it will be prepared to use by harvest time.
