Oklahoma’s COVID-19 vaccine supply could double in coming weeks

"To date, 62,294 people have received a COVID-19 vaccine in British Columbia".

About 375 miles (600 kilometers) to the north, Santa Clara County officials made their pitch to Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has his own pledge to vaccinate 1 million people by Friday. "Every vaccine dose that is sitting in a warehouse rather than going into an arm could mean one more life lost or one more hospital bed occupied".

"We want to create an environment where there is zero competition, maximum collaboration", Chavez said.

The United States is planning to release supplies of coronavirus vaccines reserved for second doses as part of an effort to speed up vaccinations of wider groups.

NY has recorded almost 40,000 coronavirus fatalities since the pandemic broke out there in March, more than any other USA state.

The trend in the 14-day moving average number of hospitalized patients per day has increased by almost 5,100 since the end of September.

"I confirmed with our healthcare team yesterday that even with normal supplies that we expect to have delivered next week, we will run out of vaccine at some point next week, unless we get a major new resupply", de Blasio said.

Quebec is facing a lawsuit from at least a dozen residents in a Montreal-area long-term care home because they didn't get their second dose on time as promised. "I think that the rates transmission are going to be significantly more challenging to contain if we see more of this B.1.1.7 variant".

In a statement, Newsom defended the move this way, "There is no higher priority than efficiently and equitably distributing these vaccines as quickly as possible to those who face the gravest consequences". For those still waiting he added, "To those not yet eligible for vaccines, your turn is coming". However, these numbers seem to have leveled out in recent days. Most of the patients hospitalized are ages 65 or older, and most of the deaths have occurred in patients 65 or older. Tuesday night, more than 10,000 people scheduled an appointment there, and thousands more asked to be notified when more appointments become available. He tried to do the same for Dohman's 79-year-old wife but the system was so overloaded with requests she couldn't get one until Thursday.
