Going Viral: Episode 144


The AZ & UQ vaccines, there are other COVID-19 vaccines being developed in Australia


In this episode:


– The current data for the AZ vaccine shows efficacy of 62% – insufficient for herd immunity, so new trials are essential
– If full TGA approval is required for the Australian COVID-19 vaccines then availability by March 2021 seems unrealistic
– Although the UQ vaccine failed, there are other Australian vaccines under development despite lack of government support



Host: Dr David Lim, GP
