At the outbreak of Covid-19 the BRC refocused its work and resources on tackling the virus.

UCLH paused all trials unless they were related to Covid-19, or where the treatment involved was essential for serious or life-threatening conditions. This meant the halted trials could no longer screen or recruit patients.

As the pandemic recedes, UCLH is restarting paused trials to ensure ground-breaking research continues and that all the input of patients into trials is not lost.

Covid-19 and flu vaccines can be given at the same time

People can safely receive the Covid-19 and influenza vaccine at the same time, according to a new study. The ‘Combining Influenza and Covid-19 Vaccination (ComFluCOV) study’ published as a preprint, found that immune responses to both the influenza and Covid-19 vaccine were preserved when given
