AstraZeneca says it will boost vaccine production to 2M a week

AstraZeneca says it will boost vaccine production to 2M a week”

Spahn has also urged the EMA to quickly approve the Oxford University-AstraZeneca shot cleared by Britain.

In a surprising move, the British government has said in its Covid-19 vaccine recommendations that it is reasonable for people to mix and match different Covid-19 vaccines.

Scientists found that the Pfizer-BioNTech jab is 70 percent effective with one dose compared to 95 percent effective with two.

Several other COVID-19 vaccines are also being weighed by some countries to help curb the spreading of coronavirus.

The UN health agency - with the Gavi Vaccine Alliance and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations - is leading a global effort called Covax to secure and distribute vaccines to poorer countries, to ensure that shots do not go only to wealthy nations. "There was always the risk that if this happened at a busy time then we could run into some difficulties, but it's happening overnight on a bank holiday and a long weekend."Britain left the European bloc's vast single market for people, goods and services at 11 p.m. London time on New Year's Eve, in the biggest single economic change the country has experienced since World War II". "None of this is being data driven right now".

Earlier this month the United Kingdom became the first country to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech jab. People who discover they received the placebo will be given the option to receive the investigational vaccine while being able to stay in the study.

He said: "Will keep you all updated on our progress with the vaccine rollout regularly".

The statement says that WHO's Emergency Use Listing (EUL) opens the door for countries to expedite their own regulatory approval processes to import and administer the vaccine.

According to the CDC, as the safety and efficacy of a mixed-product series have not been evaluated, both doses of the series should be completed with the same product.

In the United Kingdom, where a new, more contagious coronavirus strain is accelerating transmission, former prime minister Tony Blair wrote an opinion piece in The Independent on December 22 arguing that the British government should use "all the available doses in January as first doses, that is, not keeping back half for second doses" in the expectation that "even the first dose will provide substantial immunity". "UK officials seem to have given up on science altogether now and are just trying to find a way out".

31, 29,250 people in Quebec had been vaccinated.

The UK has reported 2,542,065 Covid-19 cases while 74,125 people succumbed to death from the deadly virus till Saturday afternoon, according to Worldometers.
