  • Norway flags vaccine risk in the very old

The World Health Organization has called for accelerating vaccine rollouts worldwide as well as ramping up efforts to study the sequencing of the virus, which has infected more than 93 million people globally since it was first detected in China in late 2019.

Norway has issued a tale of caution for the old and terminally ill people who are being administered the coronavirus vaccine after 23 people died in the countries shortly after receiving a jab of the vaccine.

The majority of these people also had a history of allergies or allergic reactions, the agency added.

It took Moderna just two days to create the mRNA vaccine now being used to protect people from COVID-19.

Acting Prime Minister Michael McCormack has reassured that any coronavirus vaccine rolled out in Australia will be safe, following reports of multiple deaths in elderly people in Norway linked to the Pfizer vaccine.

"Due to work to expand its European manufacturing capacity, production of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine will be impacted for a short period", Anand said.

The government said that for all other people who received the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine they will now receive their second dose between 21 and 42 days.

The German Health Ministry says on its website that the country, with a population of 83 million, will receive almost 4 million Pfizer doses by the end of January.

De Blasio says NYC will be out of COVID vaccine next week

"It is still a recommendation from the manufacturers that we are hearing at the table" to follow their protocols, she said. She said 903 of the most recent diagnoses were found in Toronto, with 639 in Peel and 283 in York.

This coming even as European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen says Pfizer has guaranteed all promised vaccine doses for the first quarter after six EU states voiced "severe concern" over delays.

"They send us vaccine and we use it".

Of 29 cases of potential side effects investigated by Norwegian authorities, nearly three-quarters were in people aged 80 or older, the regulator said in a Jan 14 report.

In France, one frail patient died in a care home two hours after being vaccinated, but authorities said given the patient's previous medical history there is no indication the death was linked to the vaccine.

Adrian Dix said Friday that planning continues, taking into account these expected delays from Pfizer, but it remains to be seen what exactly this will mean for B.C.'s rollout.

"The trials showed that the vaccine candidate was well tolerated and demonstrated 95% efficacy in preventing Covid-19 in those without prior infection of seven days or more after the second dose, compared to the placebo".

Moe called the news "very concerning", in a Twitter thread on Friday morning.
