UK scientific adviser says AstraZeneca vaccine works

The British government's Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance said on Thursday the main point about the AstraZeneca vaccine against COVID-19 was that it worked when asked about doubts that have been raised about the vaccine.

"The headline result is the vaccine works and that's very exciting," Vallance said during a news conference with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, reports Reuters.

Chief Medical Adviser Chris Whitty, answering the same question, said there was always scientific debate about virtually everything.

"The key thing from our point of view is to leave this in the hands of the regulator ... They will make an assessment with lots of data that is not currently in the public domain on efficacy and on safety," Whitty said.
