However, he wasn’t clear on what happens next. Questions have been raised by members of the public on what happens after the one year elapses. The number one question on everyone’s mind is, would recipients need to get another dose of the vaccine?

AstraZeneca is working on only one vaccine and has already advanced to midstage testing. Efficacy trials are to begin soon and the CEO, Paschal Soriot was quoted by Reuters saying that the results of the clinical trials could be ready in August/September.

He said,

We are manufacturing in parallel. We will be ready to deliver from October if all goes well.
