Post-vaccine COVID infections and deaths rare, United Kingdom study finds

Coronavirus vaccines being prepared at Salisbury Cathedral Wiltshire as the rollout continues

Eleven days ago, without consulting with states and with no clarity on stock volumes, the Centre had made a unilateral announcement on opening vaccinations for the 18-44 years age group on May 1. Please don't take it otherwise. "According to my knowledge, subject to verification, as I am told, this is what it is; if the facts are different, we will get back to you", Aggarwal said. And we are glad the government has announced vaccination drive for all above 18 from May 1. MA officials regularly report the number of breakthrough cases to the federal government, they said.

Registering will mean people "will be able to receive the first available appointment", health officials said in a statement.

The Minister said the government will intimate eligible people after confirmation from Serum Institute of India about the arrival of vaccines.

The US drugmaker said it would begin making investments this year and that production boosts would start in late 2021 and carry into early 2022.

Russia's Sputnik has given licence to Dr Reddy's Laboratory to produce the vaccine but they have not informed the government officially when they will be able to supply it.

The Centre has, meanwhile, underlined that only those private sites that are able to procure doses from the open market can continue to vaccinate, and that the doses now available for priority groups must be returned to government cold-chain points.

"I can not guess the date". Many states, however, say they don't have enough doses.

Senate passes Asian hate crimes bill with bipartisan support
In January, Biden issued an executive order condemning anti-Asian hate crimes during the pandemic. Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House would take and pass the Senate legislation next month.

He, however, said the government will continue its efforts to get the vaccines at the earliest by building pressure on the companies to deliver the consignment at the earliest.

Hernandez, who is also captain of the school's varsity soccer club, said there's a lot of misinformation on social media "going around about how the vaccine is not important or how we don't need it because we're not a high-risk community". "So there should be no confusion regarding it". Some countries, including Britain, have recommended that only people over a certain age get the shot.

Under scenario 2, we have assumed states will bear the cost for 80% of the 18-44 age group and the remaining 20% of this population will either pay themselves at private hospitals to get the jab or corporates / employers will pay for the same.

"Of this, the total consumption including wastage (0.22 per cent) was 1,56,12,510".

The vast majority of the post-vaccination COVID-19 cases and fatalities were among vulnerable, elderly people, the researchers said.

"People should behave responsibly and follow the direction given by the government". So far less than 60% of senior citizens and 25% of 45-59-year-olds have opted for vaccination.

Karnataka has been witnessing a sharp spike in cases over the past weeks and Bengaluru now has well over two lakh active cases - putting a huge strain on the health infrastructure.
