  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Children taking part in Covid vaccine trials in England” – below is their description.

    The first trials are taking place to study the effectiveness of the Oxford Covid vaccine in children, with 300 volunteers aged six to 17 taking part in the research.

    The trial will assess how far the AstraZeneca jab produces an immune response in kids. Similar studies are taking place in the United States, involving the Pfizer and Moderna jabs, and parents of children with underlying conditions are hoping the trials will help them get protection as soon as possible.
