Ontario reports 1st death related to VITT blood-clotting syndrome

Ontario reports 1st death related to VITT blood-clotting syndrome”

"Across the sea in the United Kingdom in order to tackle this concern, they have dropped their time from 12 weeks to eight weeks for the second dose of AstraZeneca", he said.

In Twitter posting today, the Port Dickson MP said people are being treated as if they were "beggars" chasing for the vaccine by the ruling administration.

In this case, everyone working for the clinic that day already had their first shot, so second doses were administered.

The woman, who was vaccinated with AstraZeneca's Vaxzevria vaccine against the novel coronavirus, was initially admitted to Paphos General Hospital earlier this month after feeling unwell.

"We are struggling economically ... that's why we have problems funding the deployment itself".

Both jabs were nearly as effective two weeks after two doses were administered - Pfizer was 88% effective against the Indian variant while AstraZeneca was 60% effective.

The health ministry reminds all health professionals of the directions and recommendations given by EMA as regards the specific vaccine and what they need to look out in their patients. "It will be accounted for, so we are committing [to return] 72,000 doses so that they are used by [countries that] can deploy them in one week", Dr Machuot told reporters at a Juba news conference.

South Sudan will be left with 52,000 doses that it hopes to use before the expiration date on July 18.

Once that batch is finished, it will request additional doses from Covax, the ministry said.

The Covax facility wrote back to the South Sudanese government, saying it was happy with the arrangement as the doses would not go to waste.

As in other parts of Africa, a fear of side effects and rumours the vaccine causes impotence or is otherwise unsafe have spurred wariness about vaccines among the population.

To date, South Sudan has recorded 10 686 cases of Covid-19 and 115 deaths.

Coordinating Minister for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme Khairy Jamaluddin said last Friday that the second round opt-in will be open to those under age 60 if there were still slots available once registration for seniors closed on May 26.

A man in his 40s is believed to be the first person in Ontario to die after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine and developing symptoms of a rare blood clot disorder. He said the decision was made late Sunday by the ministry undersecretary, Mayen Machut Achiek.

"We're seeing now with some new data from the United Kingdom that people who get two doses, as [time] goes on, their immunity keeps getting stronger and stronger, approaching some of that equal to the mRNA vaccines", he said.
