CDC reports rare allergic reactions to Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine

Time to get the jab, but can Covid-19 vaccines be mixed and matched?

A heavily female ratio was also noted with the Pfizer vaccine, which experts say could be due to the fact that more women than men have been vaccinated, at a rate of approximately two to one. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the only one so far to have received emergency use approval from the WHO.

However, Pfizer and Germany's BioNTech said they would provide their vaccine to COVAX at an undisclosed "not-for-profit price". In an updated forecast published on Thursday, COVAX said it planned to deliver almost two billion doses to 92 countries this year, covering over a quarter of their populations.

The deal comes amid growing criticism of vaccine inequity from both the World Health Organization and others as wealthy countries inoculate millions of people using shots procured through bilateral deals. "COVAX is a truly global initiative and we are happy to support by making BNT162b2 available in many low- and lower-middle-income countries to help protect vulnerable people worldwide", said Ugur Sahin, M.D., CEO and Co-founder of BioNTech.

'In exceptional situations in which the first-dose vaccine product can not be determined or is no longer available, any available mRNA COVID-19 vaccine may be administered at a minimum interval of 28 days between doses'.

Ukraine said earlier on Thursday that its first delivery of some 210,000 doses under the COVAX scheme could arrive in the first half of February.

Covax still needs to finalise a supply agreement for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

Bourla said the 40 million doses, a fraction of the company's total 2021 production estimate of 2 billion, would be sold on a non-profit basis.

Asked about accepting Chinese and Russian vaccines into the Covax programme, Berkley said they would consider any vaccines, "assuming they add value to the portfolio", are proven safe and efficacious and have reasonable pricing and supply allocations.

Health Canada's position on the vaccination schedules is that Canadians "receive both doses of the same vaccine, as close as possible to the authorized dosing regimen for each vaccine".

"But we can only end the pandemic anywhere if we end it everywhere".
