COVID-19: Morocco Maintains Use of Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaccine”

And on Tuesday Brussels sealed a deal to step up deliveries of 10 million doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, now scheduled to arrive in the European Union before July rather than in the third quarter.

The AstraZeneca vaccine, made in conjunction with the University of Oxford, is not authorized in the United States.

Therefore, the Ministry of Health made a decision to maintain the use of the Oxford/ AstraZeneca vaccine in accordance with the recommendation of the World Health Organization, the European Medicines Agency, and according to relevant data.

As previously reported, on 15 March Latvia's Disease Prevention and Monitoring Centre, State Council for Immunization, State Agency of Medicines and Healthcare Inspectorate recommended putting on hold all use of AstraZeneca vaccine.

"When we also put this in the context of Canada being in the midst of a public health emergency where we know all available vaccines will significantly reduce the risk of getting the infection. we wouldn't certainly want anyone to delay getting a potentially lifesaving vaccine while waiting for another vaccine and there's some concern that that could happen".

Its embassy in the USA was one of several worldwide to say it would begin to process "visa applicants inoculated with Chinese Covid-19 vaccines".

The agency is "still firmly convinced that the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine in preventing COVID-19 with its associated risk of hospitalization and death outweigh the risk of these side effects", Executive Director Emer Cooke added.

Canada has expanded its rollout of Oxford-AstraZeneca's coronavirus vaccine, reversing an earlier recommendation that it not to be given to seniors, even as more European nations moved to suspend its use.

On Tuesday, Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam said Canada is monitoring the situation.

The European Medicines Agency is investigating each of its blood clot cases and is expected to release results on Thursday.

The EMA underscored that while it was taking the allegations seriously, it is now unclear whether the link between the vaccine and the thrombosis cases was causal or coincidental. Vera Etches said the city would welcome AstraZeneca vaccines to speed up mass vaccination here.

Norway's capital Oslo announced tougher measures, including closing secondary schools, as it reported a record number of cases last week.

Authorities in Uganda, Somalia and Nigeria have also said they believe the vaccine is safe to use. The government is now studying the cases for a final study. He said, "There are people who have concerns".

And Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha was himself injected Tuesday as his country lifted its own AstraZeneca suspension.
