Covid-19: India crosses 20-crore mark in vaccination coverage

Moderna wants vaccine approved for adolescents

As per the latest available data with the Union Health Ministry, over 34 per cent population above 45 years has received at least 1st dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in the country to date. Seniors, Indigenous people, and people who identify as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) will be prioritized, with invitations already going out to those who are eligible.

Trevor Cowlett, an 88-year-old music teacher, was reportedly the second person in the world, bar those who have received it in clinical trials, to get the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab, and Andrew Pollard, the head of the Oxford Vaccine Group and its chief investigator, was the third. Until now, B.C. has been focused on increasing the level of immunity in communities by ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to get their first dose, Henry said.

The government had amended provisions to waive off the trial requirement altogether for the well-established vaccines manufactured in other countries and that no application of any foreign manufacturer for approval is pending with the drugs controller, he said, adding, "We need to understand that buying vaccines internationally is not similar to buying "off the shelf" items". Shakespeare said at the time, according to CBS News.

He added that the head of the civil service said: "I have lost confidence in the secretary of state's honesty in these meetings". Cummings said there was no COVID plan and certainly no plan for a lockdown .

Henry notes "it is always preferable to have the same product for the first and second doses", but that's sometimes not possible.

She added that they have enough supply for British Columbians to receive a second dose of AstraZeneca and she's not anxious about expiration dates, meaning people will have time to make a proper decision.

Dr. Henry said this applies to people who received the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines. "He became an global sensation as the first man to receive a COVID vaccine". "And I would encourage people to take the Pfizer, if it is on offer", she said. She said some people in Ontario had been offered second doses of AstraZeneca because of expiring supply, but said she does not anticipate that being an issue here. Moderna says that, following the second dose, no cases of COVID-19 were observed after 14 days.
