Moderna wants vaccine approved for adolescents

Moderna wants vaccine approved for adolescents”

Trevor Cowlett, an 88-year-old music teacher, was reportedly the second person in the world, bar those who have received it in clinical trials, to get the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab, and Andrew Pollard, the head of the Oxford Vaccine Group and its chief investigator, was the third.

Nearly all of the 3,032,811 doses B.C. had administered as of Thursday were first doses. "We now have sufficient, confirmed deliveries of vaccine in our age-based program - that's the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines - that we can move up the interval". "We will be coming to you, and we're co-ordinating that with the First Nations Health Authority and the regional health authorities".

"Bill was so grateful for being offered the opportunity to become one of the first people in the world to be given the vaccine".

To date, Canada has received and distributed just over 5.5 million Moderna shots. "And I would encourage people to take the Pfizer, if it is on offer", she said.

One is the DNA vaccine by Cadila Zydus and the other is an mRNA vaccine by Gennova Biopharmaceuticals Ltd.

In the study, a vaccine efficacy rate of 93 percent was observed more than 14 days after the first dose.

On the 130th day of the drive, the cumulative COVID vaccination coverage crossed the 20 crore mark (with 20,06,62,456 doses including 15,71,49,593 first dose and 4,35,12,863 second dose of COVID-19 vaccines), according to data available at 7 AM, the ministry said.

She said the province is still awaiting more information from studies on the AstraZeneca product being conducted in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.

India on Thursday scrapped local trials for "well-established" foreign coronavirus vaccines to fast-track imports as it battles a devastating second wave of the pandemic that has killed tens of thousands of people. She cites an adverse reaction to the first dose or perhaps supply issues as reasons that could happen.

Henry noted that B.C.'s stock of AstraZeneca, which is being held for second doses, does not expire until the end of June.

Several of the local pharmacies have not yet received any doses of vaccine, and until they do, are not booking appointments.
