Geisinger announces COVID-19 vaccine waiting list”

Geisinger said if a person is able to receive the first dose vaccine elsewhere in the community, they are encouraged to do so, but it's important to cancel any previous appointments to help ensure no vaccines are wasted.

To effectively deliver the vaccines at the grass-root level, the Chief Secretary impressed upon greater coordination between the frontline workers of various departments including health, social welfare, school education, rural development, and housing and urban development.

In a news release Wednesday, York Region said that anyone who has become eligible so far can still book an appointment if they haven't had one. The suspension is regarding one specific batch of the AstraZeneca vaccine, which has not been distributed to Africa. "We tested the baby's cord to see if the antibodies in the mother passed to the baby, which is something we see happen with other vaccines given during pregnancy".

A woman who received a single dose of Moderna's coronavirus vaccine while pregnant recently gave birth to the first-known baby born with COVID-19 antibodies "after maternal vaccinations" in Florida, according to a study shared in a preprint server.

Meanwhile, Ghana has administered more than 420, 000 doses and covered over 60 per cent of the targeted population in the first phase in the Greater Accra region - the hardest hit by the pandemic just two weeks after procuring the AstraZeneca vaccines through the COVAX programme, World Health Organization reports.

The province also introduced a Special Vaccination Leave, which allows workers to take three hours of paid time off work to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

Not withstanding these achievements, Dr Moeti revealed that there is an urgent need for more doses as Ghana, Rwanda and other countries are on the brink of running dry.

Mr Johnson said: "We have always said that in a vaccination programme of this pace and this scale, some interruptions in supply are inevitable. Additional supplies are urgently required to narrow the gap between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated", she stated.
