Coronavirus UK Vaccine Latest News Updates: Trial of Inhaled COVID Vaccine Started Developed by Oxford University and Imperial
- Oxford University and Imperial College London start trial
- The vaccination dose will be given to 30 people via nebulizer and mouthpiece
Research on Corona’s smelling vaccine has begun in Great Britain. The trial was started by Oxford University and Imperial College London. The trial researcher says 30 people will receive a vaccine dose through a nebulizer and mouthpiece. Hopefully, it reaches the lungs directly and can show a better immune response.
Such a vaccine was also effective against influenza
Chris Chiu of Imperial College’s Department of Infectious Diseases says the nasal spray vaccine (administered through the nose) was effective against the flu. This was also proven as the incidence of infection decreased.
We are also experimenting with a similar vaccine in the case of Corona. It is safe to administer the nasal spray vaccine through the nose (airways).
Vaccine expert Sarah Gilbert of the University of Oxford says injection vaccination has been shown to be safe and the immune response has been shown to be better. Now the vaccine is administered through the trachea.
The imperial vaccine is in its early stages
The Imperial College vaccine is currently in the early stages of clinical trials. The trial will include 30 people. Researchers at Imperial College say that the low dose of the vaccine delivered through the nose also protects against the virus.
