First patients injected in vaccine trial (UK)

The first human trial in Europe of a coronavirus vaccine has begun in Oxford. 

Two volunteers were injected – the first of more than 800 people recruited for the study. 

Half will receive the Covid-19 vaccine, and half a control vaccine which protects against meningitis but not coronavirus. 

The design of the trial means volunteers will not know which vaccine they are getting, though doctors will.
