  • Brazil regulator to decide on emergency use of Sinovac Astra Zeneca vaccines

Brazil's Anvisa health regulator gave emergency approval Sunday for its first two coronavirus vaccines as the country gears up to roll out a mass inoculation campaign amid a devastating second epidemic wave.

Earlier that day, the Brazilian health regulator approved the urgent use of coronavirus vaccines made by Sinovac and AstraZeneca. That has added to public frustration and offered a political rival the chance to upstage the right-wing president.

Gov. Doria, who is expected to run for president next year, has led a partnership with Chinese company Sinovac Biotech Ltd.to test and produce CoronaVac in São Paulo, criticizing what he has called a "genocidal" lack of action by Mr. Bolsonaro. A victory for life.

Bolsonaro, for whom Doria is a potential center-right rival to his 2022 re-election efforts, has taunted the governor over CoronaVac's disappointing 50% efficacy in Brazilian trials. But the federal Health Ministry has agreed to acquire and distribute the shot for the national immunization drive.

About 8.4 million people in Brazil have contracted the virus so far.

Pazuello added that after a "symbolic delivery" of vaccines to states on 18 January, the vaccination programme will begin on 20 January with delivery based on locations which are at higher risk, in a bid to provide more doses.

The federally funded Fiocruz institute is still waiting for a delayed shipment of the active ingredient in the AstraZeneca vaccine for finishing on a Rio de Janeiro assembly line.

Brazil is, meanwhile, hoping to bring two million doses of the AstraZeneca shot from India, where it is produced by the Serum Institute, in the coming days.

As of Sunday, India has vaccinated a total of 224,301 people, and to date 447 adverse events following immunization have been reported, of which three patients were hospitalized.
