The Philippines has received 525,600 AstraZeneca doses from COVAX, which provides vaccines to developing countries to ensure equitable access.

The UK government has been more cautious, issuing the advice: "The vaccines have not yet been tested in pregnancy, so until more information is available, those who are pregnant should not routinely have this vaccine".

The WHO director-general had called for all countries in the world to begin vaccinating within the first 100 days of the year, but said that with 15 days left, 36 countries had still yet to receive a single dose.

Baker's office says the FEMA support won't have any effect on the appointment process; individuals seeking to get vaccinated at any of the state's seven mass vaccination sites should preregister for an appointment on the state's website.

The state is authorizing those communities to begin vaccinating all residents 16 and older at their immediate discretion in order to use the vaccine doses they now have available.

There are also questions about whether or not Johnson & Johnson will meet its goal of delivering 20 million doses to the United States by the end of the month.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, several ministries of health, national regulatory authorities and public procurement organizations across the world had received suspicious offers to supply Covid-19 vaccines, Xinhua news agency reported.

The U.S.is among some wealthy countries that have snatched up more doses than needed by its population, and is set to have enough vaccines for its entire population by the end of July.

NYS says it is the first state to launch this kind of technology and two successful pilot demonstrations were held in recent weeks.

On Thursday, WHO's COVAX partner Gavi, announced supply problems meant it would have to delay the delivery of about 90 million vaccines until about May.

Tedros came to India's defence on Friday, insisting: "It is not an export ban".

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was "concerned" by the threat of European Union export restrictions but said his government would continue to work hard to ensure vaccine doses continue to flow into Canada.

"We are extremely grateful for the additional vaccine supply and the corresponding complement of federal and state staff for the duration of eight weeks".

"We are disappointed", Berkley told The Associated Press.

"We are still in the acute phase of the pandemic".
