Portuguese investigator has brought television reporters up to date on scientific thinking elsewhere, stressing that herd immunity is indeed the ‘myth’ that the ‘father of the AstraZeneca vaccine’ Professor Andrew Pollard said it was earlier this week.

The most essential form of safety when vaccinating people, he added, is to follow guidelines such as wearing masks and keeping a safe distance “because they are what provide guarantees.”


“What we are starting to realise”, he reiterated. “Is that a person who is vaccinated can be infected and can infect others”.
