A COVID-19 vaccine study began this week with children. But what for, when the virus mainly affects older people? FYI presenter Tilly Lockey investigated with a panel of young people – Ruby from Kettering, Oliver and Trey from London, Nikita from Walsall and Farrah from Pontypridd, Wales. They put their questions to Dr Grace Li, part of the Oxford University AstraZeneca vaccine team.



The best way to protect yourself and other people is to Stay Alert. This means you must:

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Work from home if you can
  • Limit contact with other people
  • Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • Wash your hands regularly for the length of time it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice
  • Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms
