How much will it cost?
The Oxford vaccine is far cheaper than others that have shown efficacy. AstraZeneca aim to sell the Oxford vaccine for $3-4 per shot, compared with $20 for the Pfizer/BioNTech shot and $25 for Moderna’s.

My problem is the ones using mRNA is that it would be the first mRNA vaccine approved for human use, and to my mind with such a change in direction I am not happy about cutting or compressing triala.

The Oxford/AstraZeneca one though is more of a 'bog standard' design and for me would be far more acceptable. The first two I would probably not accept being pumped into my body the Oxford one I need a bit more time to dig a bit but it looks more ok to me on the face of it.

It's also cheaper - and British!
AstraZeneca is half Swedish
