It's mostly "non-white folk" with the higher mortality rate. But feel free to pass on your vaccine so that someone else can benefit from it.

^ i have had anaphylactoid reactions in the past to certain types of food and drugs so if the warning for Pfizer is applied across the board I may be one of those who are advised not to take the vaccine. Either way I was not taking that vaccine anytime soon. Maybe 2024 when the full long term effects of the vaccines are known.

Full long term effects won't really be available until 10 years time. You are looking at short to medium-term effects which there are, no one is hiding it but for 99.9% of people, it is tolerable and short-lived.

If the vaccines aren't mandatory in 4 years' time you would have a plethora of options to choose from.

It appears that you have the issues backward. The currently approved vaccines were not COVAX program candidates. No COVAX candidate vaccines have received regulatory approval anywhere - the less expense vaccines that COVAX chose have simply not completed testing as quickly as expected.

Wealthier nations have also pledged to donate excess vaccine supplies and/or additional funding.

The COVAX team said that largest risk is the possibility that the poorest countries will reneg on the non-binding agreements and delay their vaccination programs or eliminate them altogether.

------------------

COVAX's plans rely on cheaper vaccines that have so far yet to receive approval, rather than vaccines from frontrunners Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna that use more expensive new mRNA technology. The Pfizer vaccine has already been approved for emergency use in several countries and deployed in Britain and the United States, and the Moderna vaccine is expected to be similarly approved soon.

COVAX has so far reached non-binding supply agreements with AstraZeneca, Novavax and Sanofi for a total of 400 million doses, with options to order several hundred million additional shots, one of the Gavi documents says.

READ: Commentary: This university is rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine for staff and students. It's a lot of work

But the three companies have all faced delays in their trials that could push back some possible regulatory approvals to the second half of 2021 or later.

This could also increase COVAX's financial needs. Its financial assumptions are based on an average cost of US$5.20 per dose, one of the documents says.

Pfizer's vaccines costs about US$18.40 to US$19.50 per dose, while Moderna's costs US$25 to US$37. COVAX has no supply deals with either of those firms. Nor is it prioritising investment in ultra-cold distribution chains in poor countries, necessary for the Pfizer vaccine, as it still expects to use mostly shots which require more conventional cold storage, one of the Gavi documents says.

On Tuesday, a WHO senior official said the agency was in talks with Pfizer and Moderna to include their COVID-19 vaccines as part of an early global rollout at a cost for poor countries possibly lower than current market prices.

Other shots are being developed worldwide and COVAX wants to expand its portfolio to include vaccines from other companies.

Rich countries, which have booked most of the currently available stocks of COVID-19 vaccines, are also planning to donate some excess doses to poor countries, although is not clear whether that would be through COVAX.

Pfizer says its COVID vaccine doesn’t need to be stored at ultra-freezing temps anymore

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine no longer needs to be kept at ultra-freezing temperatures and can be safely stored inside normal medical freezers — making distribution easier, the firm said in a report Friday.

The makers of the shots, including the German biotechnology firm BioNTech, have discovered the doses can remain at between 5 and -13 degrees Fahrenheit without spoiling — instead of -94 degrees like previously thought.

Covid: vaccinated Israelis to enjoy bars and hotels with ‘green pass’

Israel is preparing itself to be split in half from next week, with the government creating a new privileged tier in society: the vaccinated.

Nearly 50% of the population who have chosen to be inoculated against Covid will be provided with a “green pass” a week after their second shot, as will those with presumed immunity after contracting the disease.

From Sunday, the pass will grant access to gyms, hotels, swimming pools, concerts, and places of worship. Restaurants and bars will be included from early March.

For the rest, including children under 16 who are not eligible for coronavirus shots, many of the activities shut down during the year-long crisis will remain off-limits, although some will be available if they provide a negative coronavirus test.

Postby MaxPower » February 22nd, 2021, 8:29 am

I remember clearly a portion of Trinis were boldly blaming/accusing the Venezuelan community for spreading Covid.

Should they be given priority vaccinations?

What are your thoughts?

vaccine problems for small countries

https://newsday.co.tt/2021/02/22/caricom-blanked-from-access-to-covid19-vaccines/

[UPDATED] VACCINE SQUEEZE
RYAN HAMILTON-DAVIS 22 HRS AGO
The Prime Minister used the local saying, “Who have corn feed their fowl and who have more corn feed more fowl,” to describe problems with the distribution of covid19 vaccines, as he complained that smaller countries were being blanked for bigger countries with more bargaining power.

Dr Rowley said this has led to difficulty in pinning down a supply of the covid19 vaccine through the Covax facility, which TT and other Caricom states joined in August last year.

“What we were experiencing is, if you were a small purchaser, you were not even listened to or entertained by suppliers who were out there under the control of the bigger, more powerful countries,” Dr Rowley said during the virtual Ministry of Health press conference on Monday.

He explained that Caricom states, including TT, were among more than 100 countries which signed on to Covax last year. The arrangement was that countries would pay up front to fund research to develop the vaccine. TT made a US$1.477 million (TT$10 million) down payment.

When the vaccine was then developed and approved by the World Health Organization (WHO), these countries were supposed to be able to access a number of vaccines in relation to the size of their populations.

“But by January, when some confirmations were had that some vaccines were approved, what was happening was that the path toward accessing vaccines for countries like ours was not clear – or not there at all,” Rowley said.

The Government expected to receive between 100,000 and 120,000 vaccine doses through Covax, to inoculate 50,000 people in two doses. They were expected to begin arriving this month.

In a press conference hosted by WHO last Thursday, Rowley, as chairman of Caricom, expressed grave concern over the possibility of price-gouging, hoarding and preferential behaviour as the process of inoculating the world against the pandemic progressed.

“This being so, we in Caricom have recently called upon the WHO to immediately convene an international convention of the world’s peoples’ representatives to commiserate, explain, assist and commit to a fair sharing of the available vaccine resources for the benefit of all humankind,” Rowley said at the press conference.

At Thursday’s press conference, WHO Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus spoke out against hoarding, price-gouging and preferential behaviour, saying that no country should be left behind when distributing the vaccine.

“Vaccine equity is important for many groups, especially small island states like those in the Pacific and Caribbean with small populations who can miss out because they have less bargaining power than bigger countries,” Ghebreyesus said. “Everywhere means everywhere. Nowhere should be left behind.”

Thus far, TT has received 2,000 doses as a gift from Barbados, which was given a batch of vaccines by the government of India.

Barbados, Rowley explained, sought assistance from India, as well as two other countries, in light of the difficulty in accessing vaccines through Covax, and a looming disaster in the form of an outbreak in its prison population and among police officers.

“That (outbreak) created a national-security situation for Barbados,” Rowley said. “In that scenario, against the background of what I mentioned concerning Caricom, Barbados went one step further, in the face of its looming calamity, to ask a number of the large countries whether they could help with an instant supply of vaccines.

“They approached three countries. India agreed to send an emergency supply to Barbados of 100,000 doses that could in fact deal with 50,000 people.”

Rowley added that the only other country which got assistance from India was Cuba.

Outside Covax there were very few means to access the vaccine, as supply has fallen short of demand.

Rowley said Caricom also sought assistance from the African Union, which agreed to assist Caricom countries when they got vaccines.

“We had to tell them how much we needed, and as I speak to you now, we have to pay to get from their stores when they get.”

TT, according to the Health Ministry’s roll-out plan, is expected to get 226,000 doses out of a Caricom allocation supplied by the African Medical Supply Platform (AMSP).

In addition, the ministry intended to ask for 250,000 vaccines from India, as well as having direct discussions with the companies that make the vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Sinopharm and, once approval is granted, Johnson and Johnson.

Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh said, contrary to what was being said previously, TT always planned to accept vaccines from the Serum Institute of India, the lab manufacturing one brand of vaccine,Covishield, the local name for the the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine.

“What WHO does is authorises not only the vaccine but the manufacturing plant. That (accepting vaccines from India) was always our intention,” Deyalsingh said.

This story was originally published with the title "Caricom blanked from access to covid19 vaccines" and has been adjusted to include additional details. See original post below.

The Prime Minister has said smaller countries are being blanked by distributors of covid19 vaccines, in favour of larger countries making larger orders.

He was responding to claims that the TT government has been "tardy" in procuring covid19 vaccines.

“What we were experiencing is, if you were a small purchaser, you were not even listened to or entertained by suppliers who were out there under the control of the bigger, more powerful countries,” Dr Rowley said during the virtual Ministry of Health press conference on Monday.

Rowley explained that Caricom states including TT, were among more than 100 countries which signed on to the Covax facility last year. He said the arrangement was that countries would pay up front to fund research to develop the vaccine. When the vaccine had been developed and was then approved by the World Health Organization (WHO), these countries would have access to a number of vaccines in relation to the size of the population.

But instead, said Rowley, "By January, when some confirmations were had that some vaccines were approved, what was happening was that the path toward accessing vaccines for countries like ours was not clear, or not there at all.”

Government expected to receive 100,000 vaccines through Covax, to inoculate 50,000 people in two doses.

Thus far, TT has received 2,000 doses as a gift from Barbados, which received vaccines as a gift from India.

Rowley said Caricom states also sought out vaccines separately from Covax, one of which was through the African Medical Supplies Platform (AMPS), which was arranged in part to buy certified medical equipment.

Rowley said through the AMSP, vaccines became available for procurement from January 18.

Ghana becomes first country to receive Covid vaccine through COVAX program

Ghana has become the first country to receive Covid-19 vaccines through the World Health Organization's COVAX program on Wednesday, a joint statement issued by UNICEF Ghana and WHO Ghana said.

The shipment, consisting of 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccines, arrived at 7 am GMT Wednesday on an Emirates flight at Kotoka International Airport, in Ghana's capital Accra.

The minister for health-designate, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, led a government delegation to receive the consignment.

As the plane carrying the vaccines landed, state-run Ghana Broadcasting Corporation journalist Abdul Hayi-Moomen declared: "The flight carrying the vaccines that we so much look forward to receiving, I believe hope has arrived."

The vaccines were produced by the Serum Institute of India, in the Indian city of Pune, and are part of the first wave of Covid-19 vaccines headed to low and middle-income countries, the joint statement added.

"Today marks the historic moment for which we have been planning and working so hard," said UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore. "With the first shipment of doses, we can make good on the promise of the COVAX facility to ensure people from less wealthy countries are not left behind in the race for life-saving vaccines."
