COVID-19 frontline workers in NSW will start being vaccinated from Monday, with Premier Gladys Berejiklian arguing the definition of "success" in tackling the virus must change as the rollout progresses. Two mass vaccination sites are scheduled to open Thursday at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence and the former Citizens Bank headquarters in Cranston, which combined can administer about 1,200 shots per day at first.

"Through our partnership with UNICEF, we will be taking yet another step to prioritise and facilitate the rapid and secure movement of COVID-19 vaccines particularly to communities hard hit by the disease", said Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo.

Although daily cases have been in decline in recent weeks in Japan after peaking in early January, Tokyo and nine other prefectures are still under the coronavirus state of emergency.

Inoculations of 3.7 million more health workers will begin in March, followed by about 36 million people aged 65 and older starting in April. "In those cases, even though the participants got COVID, the vaccines reduced the severity of illness", they added.

The science, technology and innovation minister said this security will be present both during transit and at the various vaccine storage centres across the country.

Scientific advisers said on Friday they were confident the virus outbreak was shrinking across the country for the first time in six months.

"In late 2020, Malaysia inked a deal with Pfizer on procurement of 12.8 million doses of its vaccine and later agreed to purchase additional 12.2 million doses".

Supplies of imported vaccines are a major concern because of supply shortages and restrictions in Europe, where many are manufactured, Kono said.

The state's vaccine rollout has come under fire from some, but officials say the rollout is hampered only because of a limited supply.

In a major announcement, India on January 19 said it will send COVID-19 vaccines under grant assistance to several countries.

Hospitals were told to prepare to start vaccinations next week after the Therapeutic Goods Administration conducts batch testing on some of the first vials.

Ministers, health workers and volunteers will join a weekend drive to encourage Britain's most vulnerable to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, as a target nears of reaching 15 million people in top priority tiers.
