The U.S. opens up the eligibility for adult new crown vaccination in advance

Biden considers sharing vaccines with other countries before summer

He also called on the elderly to be vaccinated as soon as possible before then.

  Biden also emphasized that 150 million doses of vaccine have been injected in the 75 days after his administration began.

However, the mutated virus is spreading rapidly, leading to an increase in confirmed cases, the number of hospitalizations is no longer falling, and the death toll in some areas has increased.

He said that it is “not time to celebrate” and appealed to the public not to relax their vigilance, maintain epidemic prevention measures, and actively vaccinate.

  Biden also praised Senate Minority Leader McConnell for encouraging Republicans to vaccinate.

Polls show that Republicans are hesitant to vaccinate.

  In addition, Biden also said that he hopes that by the end of the summer, the United States can begin to provide some remaining vaccines to other countries.

Officials say AstraZeneca vaccine is "linked" to blood clots

Oxford University suspends child trials

  On April 6, local time, a senior official of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) stated that there was a “connection” between AstraZeneca’s new crown vaccine and rare cerebral thrombosis, but the reason is still unknown.

On the same day, Oxford University stated that it had suspended AstraZeneca-related children’s trials.

  Cavalieri, a senior official in charge of EMA's vaccination strategy, said, "In my opinion, we can say that it is clear that (cerebral thrombosis) is related to the vaccine. However, we still don't know what caused this reaction. ."

  However, EMA subsequently stated in a statement that its review of the vaccine is underway, and the results of the review are expected to be announced on the 7th or 8th.

An AstraZeneca spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.

  Earlier, cases of rare cerebral thrombosis were reported in Europe after vaccination with AstraZeneca.

Many countries temporarily suspended vaccination.

EMA has repeatedly stated that in investigating reported cases, they believe that the benefits of AstraZeneca vaccine outweigh the risks.

The World Health Organization also supports the continued use of the vaccine.

Subsequently, European countries have also resumed the vaccination of the vaccine.

  AstraZeneca also said that its own research found that the vaccine did not increase the risk of blood clots.

  Currently, countries such as France, Germany and the Netherlands have once again suspended mass injections of the vaccine for young people.

  In addition, the University of Oxford stated that it has suspended a small trial in the UK to test the effectiveness of AstraZeneca’s new crown vaccine for children and adolescents.

They said they are waiting for more data from the thrombosis investigation.

Many countries have recently considered the "vaccine passport" policy

The White House says the U.S. will not issue a unified passport

  On the other hand, with the development of vaccination, many countries are considering implementing the "vaccine passport" policy in the near future.

But there are mixed reviews about this content.

  On the 6th local time, WHO's health emergency project leader Ruian said that WHO supports the launch of vaccination certificates to provide personal health information, but if it is used for work, school or travel, different considerations are required.

  Ruian emphasized that there is currently a global vaccine fairness problem. If a "vaccine passport" is introduced, some people will be isolated because they cannot obtain the vaccine.

The Emergency Committee of the WHO International Health Regulations has advised the Director-General of WHO that such vaccination certificates should not be used as a requirement for international travel.

The committee will meet again to discuss this proposal.

  Previously, the United Kingdom planned to pilot the "vaccine passport" in snooker matches, comedy clubs and football matches in the next few weeks.

  The White House press secretary said on the 6th local time that the Biden administration will not issue a unified "vaccine passport."

  She emphasized: “As the federal government, our concern is simple, that is, the privacy and rights of Americans should be protected so that these systems will not be unfairly used to target some people.”
