Ah right. So what is this Vaccine Law you mention?.....Nope. The trials and manufacturing in the UK was was funded by the British Government. The vaccine was already been trialled at that stage.
This article on BBC wesite states: Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine: Bogus reports, accidental finds - the story of the jab
1. Professor Teresa Lambe designed the vaccine over the weekend (11 January, 2020).
2. First jabs were in April (from vaccine manufactured in Oxford own facilitity and a facility in Italy).
3. At end of April, manufacturing deal was made with AZ.
4. UK Gov. funding in May.
Since January 2020 is since January 2020. UK funding was May 2020 when the vaccine had already been trialled.
Just what I read/hear from reputable authorities (like the FDA, EMA, etc). Definately NOT the Daily Mail ect.
