A further 3.7 million front-line health workers are to begin being inoculated in March, followed by 36 million people aged 65 or older from April. Over one quarter of the United Kingdom adult population have now been vaccinated with the first vaccination dose.

Malaysia has secured access to enough coronavirus vaccines for its entire population, as it prepares to roll out its inoculation programme by the end of this month.

A significant reduction in Michigan's Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine allocation forced Beaumont Health was forced to cancel 1,884 second dose appointments scheduled for February 18, the health system said Monday. Beaumont Health is not mandating the vaccine for workers but strongly encouraging them to get vaccinated. That's one in every four adults now starting to receive protection from this terrible disease. The vaccine rollout shows what our country can achieve working together.

A total of 1,011 respondents from the UAE, representative of the nation's demographics, were polled in the survey to assess current perceptions, individual expectations and considerations on taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

Malaysia aims to vaccinate at least 80% of its 32 million people within a year as it pushes to revive an economy that, slammed by coronavirus-related curbs, recorded its worst slump since the Asian Financial Crisis over two decades ago. The government aims to offer a vaccine to all priority cohorts one to nine by May, and all adults by September.

Understanding who the public trusts for reliable vaccine information is critical for any national COVID-19 vaccination effort and in this case the success of the trials and vaccine uptake was reinforced in the poll by the findings that Government websites are considered the most trusted channel for the vaccine and COVID-19 information with over 60 per cent consulting UAE Health Authority websites before opting for the jab. I want to thank everybody involved in this mammoth operation which is the largest vaccination programme in our history. "We will be giving doses to security personnel and people volunteering at the (vaccine delivery) centres so there is no wastage", Khairy said.

In the next phase, GP-led vaccination sites will focus initially on the clinically vulnerable from cohort six because of the relationship between general practice and those with long-term conditions and continuity of care.
