899 people got expired Covid vaccine doses at Times Square site”

The US death count from Covid-19 surpassed 600,000 on Tuesday, although authorities hailed progress towards a return to normality as its world-leading vaccination program promised to turn the page on one of the worst health crises in its history.

We're nearly at the final hurdle of offering lifesaving jabs to all UK adults, with both vaccines providing the fullest possible protection against symptoms, serious illness and hospitalisation from this very bad virus and moving us a step closer to beating this pandemic, said UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock. And now's not the time to let our guard down.

I urge everyone aged 21 and over to get your vaccines booked in as soon as possible to not only secure this extra defence for yourself, but to protect your loved ones too, he said. These eight states have an average vaccination rate per state of 43%, according to USA Today, which is well under the 70% goal set by President Biden for the nation by July 4.

"With active participation and smooth vaccination, we expect to reach the first-dose vaccination for 36 million people by September", health ministry official Yoon Tae-ho told a briefing.

"As the priority is given to the people requiring second dose, the non-availability of vaccine caused a panic among people arriving for their first dose", he said, adding that the government had made the alternate arrangement of shifting vaccines from CVCs having slow pace of immunisation in various districts to the mega CVCs in the provincial metropolis.

Just over 52 percent of the USA population, or 174 million people, have received at least one dose of one of the three vaccines authorized in the country, according to health officials.

As of Sunday, almost 52% of the US population has received their first vaccine dose, according to the CDC. By comparison, it had only taken one month for the country to go from 400,000 to 500,000 deaths. People's misconceptions are being removed as they see more people getting the vaccine jab.

Some states have even launched lotteries which only vaccinated people can enter, with prizes of up to several million dollars.
