'Covid-19 vaccine to be available to all Americans by early April'

Food And Drug Administration Headquarters 2020 fda hearing

Facing growing public fears that politics may override science, the FDA took the unusual step of assembling more than a dozen independent scientists to review if its standards are high enough to judge the shots.

In 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) cited vaccine hesitancy as one of the top 10 threats to global health.

"All significant medical incidents, whether participants are in the control group or the COVID-19 vaccine group, are independently reviewed", a statement read.

Phase 3 clinical studies of the Moderna vaccine are taking place across the nation, including in Wilmington with Trial Management Associates, which is working with two physicians, Bart Williams and Will Jones, at Wrightsville Family Practice.

Gov. Cuomo also said that the White House has not replied to a letter he sent on behalf of governors that asked about how the vaccines would be distributed.

"Completing enrollment of the Phase 3 COVE study is an important milestone for the clinical development of mRNA-1273, our vaccine candidate against COVID-19".

On Tuesday, the Brazilian state governors said they will include China's Sinovac vaccine against COVID-19 in its national immunization program.

"The existing digital platform and processes used for the Universal Immunisation Programme (UIP) are being enhanced to track COVID-19 vaccine administration and movement - from procurement to storage to distribution to individual beneficiaries - as and when the vaccine becomes available", health ministry officials told the news agency.

The COVID-19 disease is spreading more quickly than during its initial outbreak in the spring, French government scientific advisor Arnaud Fontanet said today.

Under close monitoring, no serious adverse reactions have been reported among those who received emergency inoculation, and infections have not been reported either. Vaccines can't be given to youngsters unless they've been tested in their age group - a major hurdle in efforts to reopen schools and resume more normal activities that are critical to families' well-being. The vaccines are developed via a number of different approaches. AstraZeneca's Phase 3 United States trial started August 31, and then the trial pause was announced September 8. It is hard enough to encourage vaccination uptake under normal circumstances, but it is especially important in view of a future COVID-19 vaccine and the controversial discourse and pervasive misinformation that now surrounds the issue.

"So when people say, 'Why don't you guys come and get a COVID vaccine?' at a time when these sorts of issues around systemic racism are being countered by the current administration saying that they don't even believe that systemic racism exists, it is very hard to engender the level of trust that you need to allow people to let you inject them with a live, active disease", she said.
