TMZ reports Adams hasn't personally reached out to James to get the vaccine.

But Vivek Murthy told NBC's "Meet the Press" it's more realistic to think it may be midsummer or early fall before vaccines are available to the general public, rather than late spring.

"Congress needs to stop treating itself as a special political class, and the mere suggestion that Members of Congress are in any way more important than the very people who gave us the privilege of serving in Congress is appalling", Rep. Brian Mast of Florida said.

Gen. Gustave Perna told reporters in a telephone briefing that he made mistakes by citing numbers of doses that he believed would be ready.

Unlike the USA and United Kingdom, which conducted emergency authorizations, the EMA reviewed the vaccine for a conditional marketing authorization.

Mohamed Azmin said the government was trying to buy the Covid-19 vaccine from several other pharmaceutical companies.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has already had the coronavirus, and has immunity for a limited time, tweeted that he, too, would forgo the vaccine for now.

In a statement last week that appeared to address those concerns, the agency stressed that the vaccine would only be approved after a scientific assessment showed its overall benefits outweighed the risks.

However, hours later, Neha and Rohapreet were spotted at the Mumbai airport, pictures have been going viral on the Internet. In the adorable photo, Neha can be seen flaunting her baby bump and announced to the world that she is pregnant.

The authorisation is for over-16s only and says that the vaccine should be given to pregnant women on a case by case basis, the EMA said.

The EMA had originally said that it would decide at a meeting of medicines experts to be held at the latest on December 29. Instead, the vaccine contains a piece of genetic code that trains the immune system to recognize the spiked protein on the surface of the virus. "We are standing by ready to start the delivery of initial vaccine doses across the European Union as soon as we get the green light", said the German company's co-founder Ugur Sahin.

Biden emphasized the safety of the vaccine, and said President Donald Trump's administration "deserves some credit" for getting the vaccine distribution process "off the ground".

But she added that protective measures such as wearing masks, washing hands and social distancing would likely be needed for some time.

He said, "This is normal". "But the authorization of this first vaccine is definitely a major step in the right direction and an indication that 2021 can be brighter than 2020".

"Take the shot, LeBron", Adams concluded.

The EMA had been carrying out a so-called "rolling review" on the vaccine involving lab tests and large-scale human trials over the past few months, speeding up a process that normally lasts years.

The EMA committee is also reviewing a similar vaccine from Moderna Inc., with a key meeting set for January 6.
