Global trials of the vaccine had also been paused following the United Kingdom suspension. He said there was evidence that flu vaccines in the form of nasal sprays have been shown to protect people from infection and prevent disease spread, and scientists hoped to investigate if coronavirus could be battled in a similar way.

Chung said the government would negotiate with relevant global organisations and vaccine makers to secure the supply and would buy more as developments unfolded.

No major side effects, such as adverse reactions that require hospitalization, have been reported.

He said in a TV interview that there's a "more than 60 per cent" chance that the drugmaker's clinical research will produce results by the end of October showing whether or not the shot works, Pfizer has already started producing the vaccine it's developing with German biotech firm BioNTech even though there's no guarantee that its Phase III study will be successful, according to Bourla, who said it's a "likely scenario" that the US Food and Drug Administration will approve the shot by the end of 2020.

After the second dose, 36 percent of the age 18-to-64 group and 27 percent of the age 65-to-84 group reported fatigue.

"These are predicted side effects, and they usually disappear after a day, or at maximum, a day and a half", the minister said.

Johnson & Johnson's Belgian Janssen unit began Phase II trials of its COVID-19 vaccine on 190 people in Spain on Monday with those tests due to conclude on September 22.

Chinese firm monitoring over 10,000 influential Indians, including PM, President
Chris published the information overnight and shared it with a consortium of media outlets in the States, Canada, the U.K., Australia, and more.

"I can not say what the FDA will do", Bourla said. Last week, nine pharma companies, including Astra-Zeneca and Pfizer, pledged to rigorously vet any vaccine, but the researchers said that missing from the joint statement was a promise to share more critical details about their research.

AstraZeneca's AZN.L COVID-19 vaccine trial remains on hold in the United States pending a USA investigation into a serious side effect in Britain even as other trials of the vaccine resume, sources familiar with the details told Reuters.

Trials resumed in Britain and Brazil on Monday following the green light from British regulators but remain on hold in the United States.

It trains the body to recognize the coronavirus, which will send out an immune response if a person becomes infected.

In July, the company released data from its early-stage trial, involving 45 people who received either a low, medium or high dose of the vaccine in two shots or a placebo.

The pause in late-stage trials of a coronavirus vaccine being developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca have triggered global concern over the development of the vaccine.
