This is the cost of vaccinating India against COVID-19

Coronavirus vaccines being prepared at Salisbury Cathedral Wiltshire as the rollout continues

AstraZeneca said Friday that it intends to seek US authorization for its COVID-19 vaccine in the "coming weeks", acknowledging a delay in the much-anticipated filing that had been expected by mid-April.

The number of doses that are expected to be delivered in Canada over the next month will almost equal the total number delivered in the last 5 months.

The Anglo-Swedish drugmaker revealed the new timetable as it released first-quarter financial results, which showed that the company delivered 68 million doses of the vaccine to the U.K., European Union and other countries in the first three months of the year. This will save lives, protect our community from unsafe variants and help us get out of this pandemic.

Using first the Pfizer and then also AstraZeneca vaccines, Britain has one of the fastest COVID-19 vaccine rollouts in the world - with more than 33.8 million first doses given so far and a quarter of adults receiving two doses. That is the biggest reason why we have not been able to give the vaccination. "So I'm calling on you to get your vaccine".

At a media briefing Friday at William C. Overfelt High School in East San Jose, which is hosting a vaccine clinic through the weekend, senior Andrea Hernandez said she got vaccinated "to keep everybody safe" and urged fellow teenagers to do the same.

He said the investigation is separate from the previously announced federal criminal inquiry into George Floyd's death. President Joe Biden addressed the nation soon after the verdict, calling it "an important step".

To date, AstraZeneca and partners such as the Serum Institute of India and Fiocruz in Brazil have supplied more than 300 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to over 165 countries, the Anglo-Swedish drugmaker said.

"As we look forward to next year, we just see so much need for primary vaccine, we are hearing it all over the world, and also boosters", Moderna President Stephen Hoge said in an interview. Many states, however, say they don't have enough doses.

The hospital used to provide vaccinations and people still hope to get their shots here. Chavez, the mother of a 19-year-old, said it's risky to leave your child unvaccinated.

Vaccination of people above 18 years of age, which was supposed to start from May 1, may be delayed as the vaccines have not yet arrived, Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar said on Friday.

This is probably the result of a number of factors, including temporary interruptions in supply due to the recently lifted safety review pause for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the possibility that many people who wanted to get vaccinated have already done so, leaving only those who may be more reluctant or resistant to getting the shots.
