  1. The following is copied from a publication released on 3rd Feb:- ''What if I have already received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine? It has not yet been determined how effective Oxford-AstraZeneca is in combating the South African variant or the new UK mutated strain. However, scientists have previously stated that people should receive two doses of the same brand of vaccine, as there is not enough information about the percentage of effectiveness achieved when doses of different brands are used. It is not yet known whether a third dose of Pfizer will be required to bo
  2. It's the new variants that worry me. I'm now waiting for my second AZ jab, but AZ are already working on a 'tweaked' vaccine to combat the African and Brazilian ones ...supposedly out in the Autumn.
