UK science adviser: other vaccine trials also likely to be paused

Wed, 9th Sep 2020 16:29

LONDON, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Other COVID-19 vaccine trials are
likely to be paused at some point the British government's Chief
Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance, said, describing a pause in
the trial of an AstraZeneca vaccine as "not good" but a
sensible step.

"I think you should expect in some of the other trials that
you will see situations where things are paused and then
restarted," Vallance told a news conference.

"We need to make sure with these vaccines that they work,
they work well enough, and they are safe," he added.
