A call has been made for volunteers to take part in the first human trials of a new coronavirus vaccine in Britain.
Imperial College London and University Hospital Southampton asked for people to take part in the study to test if a potential inoculation is effective in tackling the disease.
One COVID-19 vaccine developed at the University of Oxford will be trialled on humans in the UK from Thursday this week.
Imperial College London is calling for volunteers to trial its separate vaccine in the weeks ahead. Anyone who is healthy and aged between 18 and 55 can take part at Imperial College London, University Hospital Southampton plus Bristol Children’s Vaccine Centre.
Those who take part in the trial at these centres could be paid up to £190 to £625 reimbursement for their time.
