A NHS nurse who volunteered to take part in the University of Oxford’s coronavirus vaccine trial said he is in good health and has developed ‘a lot of’ antibodies. Joan Pons Laplana, who has been working on the frontline in Sheffield, said some participants in the trials had felt unwell and suffered headaches, but were fine after taking some Paracetamol.

The Spanish nurse told broadcaster Telecinco: ‘I haven’t had one symptom. They are running tests on me every week and I have generated a lot of antibodies and T cells.’ Joan, who was once named Britain’s nurse of the year, believes the vaccine will be ready on November 3 after the trial comes to an end – but a date has not officially been set by scientists or medical officials.
