Andrew Lloyd Webber to Receive Experimental Coronavirus Vaccine

Andrew Lloyd Webber is volunteering to try a vaccine.

The 72-year-old award-winning composer announced that he will take part in an experimental study amid the search for a coronavirus vaccine in a message on Wednesday (August 12).

“I am excited that tomorrow I am going to be vaccinated for the Oxford Covid 19 trial. I’ll do anything to prove that theatres can re-open safely,” he said.

The University of Oxford has been developing an experimental vaccine called ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 and results have been promising so far, via the BBC.

Stage productions across the world have largely shuttered since March, and all productions on the Great White Way will be suspended through the rest of the year.
