Centre to pay for first 3 crore vaccines, not states

The Gouverneur-based drug store chain announced Monday morning that it would administer the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine to people 75 years and older by appointment at all its 75 pharmacies in NY, including 16 in Onondaga County, becoming the first drug store chain to offer the vaccine.

Global cases of the coronavirus have topped 90 million, as the number of deaths approaches 1.9 million.

Biden pulled off his sport jacket to reveal a dark, short-sleeve T-shirt underneath and said, "Ready, set, go". USA ambassador to United Nations will visit Taiwan, Pompeo saysThe State Department did not immediately respond to questions seeking to clarify how this rule change would affect U.S. officials travelling to Taiwan, as senior Trump administration officials have already travelled to the self-ruled island in recent months, and another plans to travel there next week.On Thursday, the Trump administration announced that its ambassador to the United Nations, Kelly Craft, would be travelling to Taipei to meet with senior Taiwanese leaders from January 13 to 15.In August and September, the Trump administration sent its Secretary of Health and Human Services, Alex Azar, and a senior state department official, Keith Krach, to Taiwan.

Serum chief executive Adar Poonawalla had told the CNBC-TV18 channel in November the vaccine would be priced at about ₹1,000 ($13.55) per dose for the private market in India and would cost the government about ₹250 ($3.40) per dose. Biden's goal is protect more people, more quickly, his team announced last week. Besides tapping that site, which will have a 75 million-dose capacity, the company plans to call on new suppliers and CMOs, Sahin said.

With its Pfizer-partnered COVID-19 vaccine authorized in the U.S., Europe, the United Kingdom and a slate of other countries, German mRNA specialist BioNTech is wasting no time scaling up its 2021 pandemic ambitions-namely, 2 billion shots by year-end, plus a slate of new approvals and a temperature-stable formulation, too.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine requires a second shot about three weeks after the first vaccination. Both are two-dose vaccines, which will have to be administered at a 28-day gap. There are now no one-shot vaccines approved for use in the U.S.

The first batch of Covishield, the Serum Institute of India's coronavirus vaccine, left Pune early this morning, four days ahead of the nationwide inoculation drive against COVID-19.

Biden admitted it will not be easy to bring the virus under control but is hopeful measures such as wearing masks, social distancing and frequent handwashing, coupled with rapid vaccination, will help.
