Ministers say April will be the “second dose month”, as the UK flew past the 30.9 million milestone of first doses - with millions needing their second jab after 12 weeks. Despite a torrent of fake news about the jabs, Brits have voted with their feet, queuing up for their second doses with barely any cancellations in a major snub to loud mouthed EU...
    BRITS in their 40s may have to wait another month before being offered their Covid vaccine – with shortages slowing the rollout. Ministers promised bumper supply from mid-March would see record daily jabs in arms. 3Over-40s could wait another month for their shotCredit: LNP But a delay to a key shipment means millions of younger Brits will have to wait longer for their first immunisation. NHS bosses have told GPs to focus on delivering second shots to older patients and first doses to over-50s over the coming weeks. It means the second phase of the immunisation blitz is unlikely to start before mid-April. In a letter sent today, NHS chief warn of a “significant reduction” in weekly supply from March 29. It warns “volumes for first doses will be significantly constrained” for the following four weeks. Nearly one in two Brit adults have now had their first Covid jab, with...
    A New England Medical Journal (NEJM) study is the latest in a slew of research to show that one dose of a coronavirus vaccine gives COVID-19  survivors as much protection as two doses offer people who have never been infected.  'These findings suggest that a single dose of vaccine elicits a very rapid immune response in individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19,' said study co-author and renowned Mount Sinai vaccinologist Dr Florian Krammer.  'In fact, that first dose immunologically resembles the booster (second) dose in people who have not been infected.'  But Dr Anthony Fauci and U.S. health officials have been insistent that everyone get two doses of vaccines made by Moderna and Pfizer.  So why not give people who have had COVID-19 just one shot, instead of two?  An expert told DailyMail.com that now that the U.S. has more vaccine dose available from three manufacturers, the process of...

    California counties are finally getting more COVID-19 vaccines. Yet despite that, securing a first dose is getting more difficult. That’s because large amounts of the new supplies are being reserved for people needing their second dose — leaving fewer shots for everyone else who’s eligible. Here are some things you need to know: California Tracking vaccinations in California California Tracking vaccinations in California Experts say about most Americans will need to be vaccinated to bring the coronavirus pandemic under control. Track California’s progress toward that goal. Where do we stand with vaccine shipments? Los Angeles County, the nation’s most populous, has seen its vaccine shipments seesaw wildly over the past month, making it difficult for officials to accurately peg the amount of supplies they’ll have.

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Despite the huge demand for the first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, doctors at one Dallas hospital say they are stunned at the number of people not showing up for their just as important second dose. Of the more than 500 people registered to return to City Hospital at White Rock for the second doses of vaccine in the past month, as nearly 10% failed to keep their appointments. That’s disturbing to the medical staff which is working hard to make sure the precious few doses City Hospital at White Rock gets every week don’t go to waste. The East Dallas hospital has had as many as 50 of the 519 vaccinated miss their appointments for the crucial second one which can raise immunity to the virus to as much as 94%. The hospital’s Chief Medical Director Dr. John Myers said when they do have an extra dose, it...

    Connecticut continues to pump out COVID-19 vaccines at among the quickest clips in the country. In his latest COVID-19 update, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont announced that Connecticut ranks in the top three states for administering the vaccine as others have struggled with rolling out their vaccination plan. As of Thursday, Jan. 28, there were a total of 364,255 - 299,876 first, 64,379 second - COVID-19 vaccine doses administered statewide, with a 16 percent increase in allocations to states beginning next week, according to President Joe Biden. Lamont said that 35 percent of the state’s population over the age of 75 who are eligible for the vaccination have received the shot, and that the next allocation of vaccines is to be focused on residents over the age of 75 in underserved communities. Due to the demand for the vaccine, Connecticut has added an additional 80 people to take calls at the...
    (CNN)A possible explanation is emerging for why federal data shows only about half of the vaccine supply delivered in the US has been administered. The nation's vaccine distribution figures have baffled observers for weeks, with states claiming they need more vaccine when the data indicates they still have many doses on hand. Health officials for President Biden sought to explain on Wednesday, at least in part. January has been the deadliest month for Covid-19 with nearly 80,000 lives lost so far in the USSpeaking at a media briefing, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said not all vaccine that's been delivered to states is available for "inserting into people's arms." White House Covid-19 Response Coordinator Jeff Zients took that explanation a step further.

    NEW CASTLE, Del. (CBS) — The Delaware Fire Commission worries that nearly 3,500 firefighters and EMTs who received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine may have to go through the whole process again. It turns out that the state doesn’t have enough doses for the second round of shots. Firefighters at Christiana Fire Company have been on the front lines since the pandemic started. “Just doing the quick math, it’s a minimum of 20,000 interactions with people a year,” said Assistant Chief of the Christiana Fire Company Dennis Godek. Twenty-seven of 80 staff have tested positive and another 70 quarantined at some point. “It has impacted us significantly,” said Godek. Firefighters were supposed to get their second dose of the vaccine on Tuesday but found out through an email that it was being delayed. It’s not clear if or even when the second dose will be rescheduled. In a...
    The Biden administration plans to buy 100 million more doses each of Pfizer and Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine in order to vaccinate 300 million Americans by the end of summer.  'The biggest problem, I hope you're all asking me by the end of summer is that you have too much vaccine leftover,' Biden said at the White House Tuesday afternoon.   Biden delivered the update Tuesday on the heels of Vice President Kamala Harris getting her second shot of the Moderna vaccine at the Bethesda, Maryland headquarters of the National Institutes of Health.    President Joe Biden gave a COVID-19 update on Tuesday explaining that the administration would buy 100 million doses of each of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines  Vice President Kamala Harris received her second dose of the Moderna vaccine Tuesday at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda  Dr. Anthony Fauci (left) and second gentleman Doug Emhoff...

    Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar was highly optimistic after Moderna released data on its coronavirus vaccine Monday showing a high degree of effectiveness. "It’s just a historic day in public health to have now this as well as the Pfizer vaccine coming to the American people," Azar said on CNBC Monday morning. Pharmaceutical company Moderna announced Monday that its coronavirus vaccine was 94.5% effective based on preliminary phase 3 trial data. Last week, Pfizer announced its vaccine was 90% effective. Azar suggested that 40 million doses would be available by the end of this year. That’s enough to inoculate 20 million people because the vaccine requires two doses. “Our goal would be by the second quarter [of 2021] to have enough vaccine for every American,” Azar said. Scott Gottlieb, the former head of the Food and Drug Administration under President Trump, was equally upbeat on the Moderna...
