Fears are growing in Japan, where an inoculation drive against COVID-19 will begin on Wednesday, that millions of doses of Pfizer vaccine could be wasted due to a shortage of special syringes that maximise the number of shots used from each vial.

"We are about to start vaccinating, which is said to be the strongest weapon in the fight against the coronavirus", Kono, who also serves as Japan's minister in charge of the vaccination program, told a press briefing on the matter.

According to a court ruling, Kong and his team made a profit of 18 million yuan (US$2.78 million) by hawking syringes of the fraudulent vaccine since August a year ago.

He said so far, clinical information on this vaccine had been positive and based on the recommendation of the Covid-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee Special Committee (JKJAV), the Cabinet had chose to purchase this vaccine.

Japan fell behind after it asked Pfizer to conduct clinical tests with Japanese people in addition to the company's earlier tests in six other nations.

The CDC data documented the 10 cases of anaphylactic shock among a reported 4,041,396 first doses of the Moderna vaccine

"I want to do everything I can to make sure that we can get six doses, considering that there are so many people around the world waiting to be vaccinated, and Japan can't be the one country that is wasting its vaccines", Kono said. "So at the end of the day we might have started slower but we think it will be more effective".

The government had planned to administer the first dose this coming Saturday, following the Monday arrival of the country's first vaccine doses. Half will participate in a health study by keeping daily records of their condition for seven weeks after their first of two shots.

Promptly named as www.vaksincovid.gov.my, Muhyiddin encouraged everyone to take the COVID-19 vaccine so that our lives can return to normal.

"With more than 3,000 people arriving in Sydney from overseas each week, priority is being given to quarantine workers to mitigate the risk of an outbreak, and protect those protecting us". People with underlying health issues, as well as caregivers at nursing homes and other facilities, will be next, before the general population receives its turn.

NM continues to see below 500 COVID cases a day
Referring to the frustration many Canadians feel about falling behind the U.S.in vaccination efforts, Henry says she understands. February 16-Thurston County reported 67 COVID-19 cases Tuesday as vaccine supply will limit first-dose clinics this week.
