    By TOUSSAINT N'GOTTA, Associated Press ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast (AP) — Ivory Coast has begun giving shots to inoculate against COVID-19 with vaccines delivered last week by the global COVAX initiative, which was created to ensure that low- and middle-income countries have fair access to doses. The West African country's mass vaccination campaign started Monday with jabs being given to health workers, teachers, and members of the armed forces at the Treichville Sports Palace in the commercial capital, Abidjan, where 95% of the country’s cases have been recorded, according to the health ministry. The drive is using 504,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine made by the Serum Institute of India. Some 24 other African countries are expected to start receiving vaccines via COVAX this week in what is the world's largest vaccine procurement and supply operation in history, according to WHO and UNICEF. The COVAX initiative, however, has been hampered by the severely limited global supply of doses as well as logistical problems that delayed the global distribution of the vaccines. Ivory Coast's Health Minister Eugène Aka Aouélé said the first...

    ST. CHARLES, Ill. (CBS) — The number of coronavirus vaccine locations seems to be continuously growing – while our supply is dwindling. The Illinois Department of Public Health doesn’t expect widespread availability of first-dose appointments again until March, and weather issues last week only made this worse. READ MORE: Chicago Lakefront, Playgrounds, Indoor Swimming Pools To Begin Reopening So why are big vaccination centers even opening? As CBS 2’s Lauren Victory reported, coordinators in one area county said it is for “optics.” Vacant for 11 years, a former K-Mart was just announced as McHenry County’s new mass-vaccination site. DuPage County also switched to a larger distribution location earlier this month, and Lake County is already starting to hire vaccine help. It may be encouraging. But one Twitter user in Kane County is not feeling positive – asking CBS2 to investigate her Health Department. “Why are the other counties doing so much better?” she wrote. “The reality is, we’re getting the doses out,” said Kane County Board member and Public Health Committee Chair Jarett Sanchez. The doses are going out through...
    Alaska has vaccinated more of its population than any other state in the US, despite the challenges posed by the nation's largest state with its frigid cold, frequent storms, and an expanse of land and few roads.  Roughly 18 percent of the population is American Indian or Alaska native – a larger share of indigenous people than any other state in the US has. Native Americans have been hit especially hard by the pandemic itself, but the state's large native population has turned out to be a major advantage in the rollout of vaccines.  Alaska has been receiving additional doses on top of its state allocation through Indian Health Services (as well as significant allotments through the military and DoD), which have come in monthly shipments, rather than weekly ones like most states get, since the start of rollout.  The state also has a pre-existing vaccine distribution program that is almost unique in the US. State authorities still act a as a middleman in Alaska, while doses of flu and MMR vaccines are sent directly from distributors to pharmacies. The...
    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow began distributing the Sputnik V COVID-19 shot via 70 clinics on Saturday, marking Russia's first mass vaccination against the disease, the city's coronavirus task force said. The task force said the Russian-made vaccine would first be made available to doctors and other medical workers, teachers and social workers because they ran the highest risk of exposure to the disease.

The age for those receiving shots is capped at 60. People...

Anton Vaganov/Reuters Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on Tuesday that his country had approved the world’s first coronavirus vaccine, and it would be available for general inoculation the January 2021.
