Oxford and AstraZeneca's COVID vaccine trial is put on HOLD for safety reasons after a British volunteer had a 'serious' reaction that could have been caused by injection
Phase 3 trials for the coronavirus vaccine being developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca have been placed on a hold after a 'serious adverse event' was reported in a participant in the UK.
Serious adverse events are suspected reactions to vaccines or drugs that require hospitalization, are life-threateningly or deadly.

(Note: In large trials illnesses will happen by chance.... Is THAT what AZ wants us to believe?)
“This is a routine action which has to happen whenever there is a potentially unexplained illness in one of the trials, while it is investigated, ensuring we maintain the integrity of the trials,” AstraZeneca said in a statement.
“In large trials, illnesses will happen by chance but must be independently reviewed to check this carefully.”
