The University of Oxford has developed a vaccine against the coronavirus, which has been able to create remarkable immunity among elderly people.
The study has involved 560 healthy adult volunteers. Accordingly, adults in the age group 56-69 and also those above 70 years of age have shown remarkable tolerance for the virus, after being administrated with the vaccine.
Therefore, scientists have confirmed that the vaccine, now known as ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine, have shown better results among the elderly groups than the younger ones when it comes to building immunity.
This is the most significant finding, as the coronavirus seems to be disproportionately affecting the older people. The most number of asymptomatic coronavirus cases seems to be younger people. In the meantime, the majority of the fatalities were those of older people.
Therefore, this vaccine gives much hope for the older generation.
