Britain hits milestone as half of all adults get first vaccine dose

This Indian pharma firm is developing oral COVID-19 vaccine in capsule form

As of last night, government figures show 3.95 million doses of vaccine had been administered across Canada, and almost 630,000 people had been fully vaccinated.

Border workers were the first people in New Zealand to be vaccinated against Covid-19. The total vaccine wastage was 1.22 percent, Dr Rao said.

The COVID-19 vaccine should be able to give good protection from the infection for eight to ten months, AIIMS director Randeep Guleria said on Saturday.

These are three inactivated vaccines, one adenovirus vector vaccine, and one recombinant protein subunit vaccine, Mao noted.

"First time we have had 3M or more in two consecutive days".

"A total of 4,36,75,564 vaccine doses have been given, as per the provisional report till 7 pm today".

Health authorities said the State received just 40,540 vaccine doses which were meant for armed forces.

Through Saturday, almost 75 million vaccine doses have been given, the country's National Health Commission said.

The federal government communicated with Missouri public health leaders that vaccine allotments will increase significantly in the first week of April.

When the school staff vaccination effort is complete, police, firefighters, corrections officers, grocery store employees and food and agricultural workers will be next in line for the Johnson & Johnson vaccines, Wolf said.

Vaccination there started December 19, 2020, which coincided with the third wave of COVID-19 in Israel. It is given in two doses & takes a few weeks to become effective. 419,430 people have already been fully vaccinated. A second dose would not be expected to confer immunity within that time. "There's a really very good chance that eligibility is gonna be expanded before we get done even with those first rotations", said Dr. Scott Harris.

The researchers looked to see the rate of reduction in SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 disease after vaccination.
