Oxford Vaccine Team  | This Morning

They are the team who have given us hope after ten long months of lockdowns, disruption and of course the loss of so many lives. While the world stood still, watching the number of deaths and infections steadily rise, an incredible mainly-female team spent hours hunched over microscopes and trawling through data. All the while juggling the demands of young families and home-schooling.
