Pfizer jab 95.8% effective against Covid ― Israel health ministry

The Chumakov Centre, founded in 1955 in St Petersburg by Mikhail Chumakov, is known for its work with United States scientist Albert Sabin at the height of the Cold War, which led to the production of the widely-used polio vaccine.

The jab developed by U.S. pharma giant Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech is based on novel mRNA technology and was the first vaccine against COVID-19 to be approved in the West late a year ago.

Khairy, who is also the coordinating minister for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, said both Muhyiddin and Dr Noor Hisham will take their first jabs at Klinik Kesihatan Putrajaya after the weekly Cabinet meeting.

The rollout more broadly commences on Monday, targeting health and border control workers, aged care residents and their carers in the first phase.

His jab was televised on Sunday in order to help boost confidence in the vaccine rollout across Australia.

They can resume next Friday, Feb. 26, Newsom said. "A lot were going to arrive today didn't", Newsom said.

Israel says vaccination is the responsibility of the Palestinian Authority (PA), but it received further criticism last week for preventing the PA from sending vaccine doses to the blockaded Gaza Strip.

Japan, which received its first shipment of up to 386,100 doses from Pfizer's factory in Belgium on February 12, is seeking to inoculate 40,000 health care workers in the initial phase, starting first in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

"It won't change anything tomorrow morning of course, but as we get more people vaccinated, it will change how we manage things".

Russian Federation has registered its third Covid-19 vaccine CoviVac, following Sputnik V and EpiVacCorona, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced on Saturday.

The next shipment will have about 75,000 vials of the vaccine, he told reporters.

"We're still in Phase 1b, and we're not ready to go into Phase 1c yet".

But heading the vaccination queue was aged care resident Jane Malysiak, 85, who survived World War II in Poland as a child before migrating to Australia.

Government is targeting to vaccinate 10 million people free of charge on a voluntary basis to achieve herd immunity.

The survey will be done in a bid to determine if there are any adverse effects from the jabs and to get other related information.
