I'm not in one of those areas so can't help. Couldn't help noticing though that this is a 12 month trial. Didn't the spokeswoman say she was 80% confident that they'd have a vaccine by September? That was taken to mean a vaccine licensed for use.

Just back from giving my 28day post vaccine blood samples. They are certainly getting ready to test a lot more people for the trial in Oxford.

When I signed up it was for six months with an option to extend it to 12 which basically meant going back six months after your last blood test for one more to see if anything had changed. Six months would be September for me so maybe they hope to have enough results by then to roll it out.

Wonderful initiative, but unfortunately I'm not resident in one of the study areas.  I hope that changes as I'd be keen to participate.

To be eligible, it states I must not Have previously taken part in a trial with an adenoviral vaccine or received any other coronavirus vaccines.

Does the annual flu jab count as a "coronavirus vaccine"?

All very worthy JK but my altruism doesn't extend to having an unknown injected into me. I appreciate it could be for the greater good but 'ahm oot'. Too much risk.

And yes. It will be hypocritical of me to get a vaccine shot should one be available but I will be towards the back of the queue to see how the early adopters get on. If i haven't got the antibodies and I'm more confident of effectiveness and side effects I'll probably have one though to contribute to herd immunity. 

Illogical and paradoxical, but that's the human condition.

It's not till you get to the end that you discover you have to be under 55. Otherwise I would have signed up.

Thank to everyone who has considered participating. 

EDITED: see next post.

It's not till you get to the end that you discover you have to be under 55.

I think that varies with area, so I hope that it won't put anyone off checking what's possible.
