COVID-19: Vaccine trial put on hold as volunteer suffers suspected adverse reaction

The Oxford vaccine trial has been put on hold due to a suspected serious adverse reaction in one of the participants.


Researchers have paused the trial while they investigate the unexplained illness of a volunteer in the UK.


“As part of the ongoing randomized, controlled global trials of the Oxford coronavirus vaccine, our standard review process was triggered and we voluntarily paused vaccination to allow review of safety data by an independent committee,” a spokesperson for AstraZeneca – the drugmaker working with Oxford University – said.
