Moderna To Make 600 Million Vaccine Doses In 2021

Moderna To Make 600 Million Vaccine Doses In 2021”

It is made by USA company Moderna and works in a similar way to the Pfizer one already being offered on the NHS.

In the U.S., over 15 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccines have been distributed, but only 4.5 million people have received their first dose. Germany would get 2 million doses in the first quarter and 50 million in all of 2021, Spahn told reporters in Berlin.

"Once endorsed by the EC, the label would state that after dilution, vials of Comirnaty contain six doses of 0.3 ml of vaccine", Pfizer said in a statement. Message boards on the so-called dark web have added COVID-19 vaccines to more traditional illicit goods for sale. In December, Operation Warp Speed leaders said they hoped to distribute 20 million vaccine doses by the end of 2020.

Meanwhile, 235 candidate vaccines are still being developed worldwide with 63 of them in clinical trials in countries including Germany, China, Russia, Britain and the United States, according to information released by the World Health Organization on January 6.

The European Union reached a deal with Pfizer and BioNTech for 300 million additional doses of the vaccine, the head of the European Commission said on Friday, in a move that would give the EU almost half of the firms' global output for 2021.

Both vaccines now authorized in the United States, developed by Pfizer and Moderna, require recipients to receive booster shots after three and four weeks, respectively.

No vaccine is 100% effective and it takes time for protection to build. Israel authorized the vaccine on Monday. The Dutch were only beginning to give out vaccine shots Wednesday, the last European Union nation to start doing so.

US President-elect Joe Biden will receive his second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on Monday, his office announced, three weeks after his first injection was broadcast live on TV to boost public confidence in the jab.

The decision clears the way for a second vaccine option after the Pfizer-BioNTech jab in an inoculation campaign that has been assailed by critics as lagging far behind those of its neighbours.

The Commission has denied accusations that it did not order enough doses, pointing instead to bottlenecks in production and delivery.

"The Moderna vaccine will be a vital boost to these efforts and will help us return to normal faster".
