Yea, it turns out developing and making vaccines is hard, requires thousands of scientists, doctors, engineers and technicians, vast infrastructure, complex supply chains and billions of Euro. Who knew?Except its due to be approved soon and its manufacturing issues that are delaying its rollout.
Yep, while the UK and USA have effective vaccine export bans the EU has allowed the export of about 50% of the vaccines we've produced so far.I see Joe Biden wanted to allow a patent vaccine waiver for corona vaccines but only after the majority of US citizens are vaccinated and after he had blocked vaccine exports to those very countries including AZ vaccines that they were not even using. How is Joe Biden allowed to pontificate on vaccines given their shameful selfishness and then attempting to virtue signal and damage the european vaccine rollout. Thankfully Angela Merkel has shot this proposal down . If Biden wants to show his virtue let him donate US vaccines to the developing world now
Over 70 and under 50 ( vulnerable), I'm sure some 50 to 69 might be getting Pfizer if nothing else is available.Does anyone know which group - age or otherwise - is being offered the Pfizer vaccine in Ireland at present ?
Since we aren't paying directly for ours people might give this consideration. It will go a very long way.If you want to help, there’s the Get A Vaccine Give A Vaccine campaign.
UNICEF is delivering 2 billion COVID-19 vaccines to the most vulnerable families, health workers and high-risk people on our planet. Click to learn more.www.unicef.ie
Thank you for that Paul OM,Over 70 and under 50 ( vulnerable), I'm sure some 50 to 69 might be getting Pfizer if nothing else is available.
Second doses would be probably the vast amount of Pfizer doses now as AZ is for 69 to 50.
It's an exercise I was going to " get to " using ECDC data but my polytunnel has taken over my time.
There are so many contradictory messages about each vaccine it's difficult to be clear on what is the most effective.Thank
Thank you for that Paul OM,
seems like 50 to 70 group is getting a raw deal all round, with not even one mRNA option available to them.
And yet I've heard that some states are offering beer and steaks to the over 40% of adults who don't want to be vaccinated.
Some are saying that the US might not get to 60% of adults vaccinated where does that leave the world?
