NEWS ROUNDUP: Novavax vaccine production & council staff found breaching safety guidelines

 

Novavax vaccine production & council staff found breaching safety guidelines.

Millions of doses of the novavax vaccine will be produced and bottled in the North East. It is believed to be 96% effective against the original strain of coronavirus but has not yet been approved by the healthcare agency.

Rule breaches

A report has found that council staff in Redcar & Cleveland have been breaching coronavirus guidelines. When challenged, staff had responded by saying they had been vaccinated or had already contracted the virus. But the vaccine is not 100% effective and those who have had the virus can get re-infected, meaning it is essential to uphold safety guidelines whilst they remain in place.
 
Hybrid working
 
The future is hybrid working, that's according to an IT company in the North East. TruStack has been assisting companies in the region to switch to working from home models throughout the pandemic, and says that a very small minority intend to send their staff back to the office full time once restrictions have eased.
