2,4 fully vaccinated volunteers will participate in a study conducted by the English Public Health Service next June to examine the immune response to the third injection.

The most damaged country in Europe with around 128,000 dead, the United Kingdom has seen a significant improvement in its health status after long and strenuous winter imprisonment and large-scale vaccination campaigns.
To keep up with the progress, officials plan to launch a booster campaign in the fall following clinical trials on the immune response elicited by the third dose of the vaccine. This Public Health Service (NHS) study, which includes 2,886 fully vaccinated volunteers, will examine the effects of seven different vaccines – Oxford / AstraZeneca, Pfizer / BioNtech, Modern, Novavax, Valneva, Jensen and Curevac. Funded by the government for 19.3 million pounds (22.4 million euros), it will start in June and the first results are expected in September.
