The vaccine, developed by the Johnson & Johnson-owned pharmaceutical firm, is 66% effective overall at preventing moderate to severe coronavirus 28 days after vaccination, trial results show.
Novavax announced late on Thursday that its jab was 89% effective following a clinical trial run in the UK.

Allerdale – 390.7
Barrow – 344.5
Carlisle – 504.2
Copeland – 330
Eden – 304.2
South Lakes – 221.7
