When you can expect a jab, announced on Australia’s 1st COVID anniversary

Maj. Gen. Dany Fortin, who heads up Canada's vaccine rollout efforts, is standing by guarantees that Pfizer will deliver four million doses of its vaccine to this country by the end of March.

Pfizer Inc. will be able to supply the United States with 200 million Covid-19 vaccine doses two months sooner than previously expected, according to its top executive.

The government is now planning to begin vaccinations in late February - slightly later than the mid-February start date it had previously announced as a result of shipment and production delays, with healthcare workers and the elderly to be given priority access.

"Until there is sufficient supply to vaccinate every Ontarian who wants to receive one, we continue to urge everyone to stay home and continue to follow public health measures".

Minister for Health Greg Hunt also backed the approval, saying "The TGA's processes are I believe the best in the world and we have ensured that they are thorough".

Australia has taken a monumental step in our coronavirus battle today, with the Therapeutic Goods Administration officially approving the Pfizer vaccine.

The European Union has obtained widespread criticism for the sluggish implementation of a mass vaccination program.

However, the Health Department Secretary Brendan Murphy stated that Australia will face "major logistical issues" in its intentions to vaccine the Australian population, as have other countries around the world, as the vaccine is required to be transported and stored at minus 70 degrees.

The EU has so far only approved the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines for use but is expected to authorise the AstraZeneca vaccine before the end of this week.

Data released by Israel's Ministry of Health and one of its top health-care provides indicate that the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer is proving to be highly effective in providing immunity from the virus.

"We are very conscious that the earlier vaccine doses are available, the more lives can potentially be saved". The TGA provisional approval is for individuals 16 years of age and older.

Mr Morrison said this delay was due to supply struggles from vaccine distributors.

"The vaccine can be offered to a breastfeeding woman who is part of a group recommended for vaccination (e.g. health workers); discontinuing breastfeeding after vaccination is now not recommended". "Let's be more conservative on that", Minister Hunt said.

In a separate development, the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) granted emergency use authorisation (EUA) to Russia's Covid-19 vaccine, Sputnik V.
