India slammed the U.K.'s decision to exclude vaccinated Indian travelers from its new travel guidelines, calling it "discriminatory" and warning of reciprocal measures. The British government will next month allow fully vaccinated travelers from a list of countries to skip quarantine upon arrival — but Indians who are fully vaccinated will still need to be quarantined. The U.K. last week eased travel restrictions for fully vaccinated individuals from 17 countries and territories, including Japan and Singapore, saying they would not have to stay in quarantine for 10 days after arriving in England. The approved vaccines are: Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna or Janssen. It has been approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization.

NEW DELHI — India, the world's largest vaccine producer, will resume exports and donations of surplus coronavirus vaccines in October after halting them during a devastating surge in domestic infections in April, the health minister said Monday. The halt in exports left many developing countries without adequate supplies and delayed vaccines for millions of people. Download the NBC News app for breaking news and politicsBefore halting exports, India donated or sold 66 million vaccine doses to nearly 100 countries. He said India's monthly coronavirus vaccine production has more than doubled since April and is expected to increase to 300 million doses in October. A country of nearly 1.4 billion people, India has administered more than 800 million vaccine doses.

REUTERS/Johanna Geron(Reuters) -AstraZeneca said on Tuesday it would invest $360 million to develop a manufacturing facility in Ireland to produce active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), or the main components of medicines. “The future manufacturing of APIs for our medicines includes compounds with highly complex synthesis ...

REUTERS/Henry NichollsNEW DELHI, Sept 21 (Reuters) - India's foreign minister on Tuesday urged Britain to remove a rule requiring Indians visiting there to quarantine even if they are fully vaccinated. Britons vaccinated in the United Kingdom with the same Indian-made doses are not required to quarantine. The British High Commission (embassy) in New Delhi said the United Kingdom was working with India to resolve the issue. "It is offensive to ask fully vaccinated Indians to quarantine," he said. A smaller number have taken an indigenous vaccine developed by Bharat Biotech, which is not in use in Britain.

REUTERS/Rupak De ChowdhuriNEW DELHI, Sept 21 (Reuters) - India's government will not buy COVID-19 shots from Pfizer (PFE.N)/BioNTech (22UAy.DE) and Moderna (MRNA.O), three government sources told Reuters, mainly because domestic output of more affordable and easier-to-store vaccines has jumped. A second source said: "The government will not buy Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. A Pfizer spokesperson in India said discussions were ongoing and it remained committed to bring the vaccine to the country. The company reiterated that "during the pandemic phase, it would supply the COVID-19 vaccine only to central governments and supra-national organisations".

Live U.N. Live Updates: Biden Pledges to Work Toward ‘Peaceful, Prosperous Future For All’ Covid-19 and climate change are dominating the start of the General Assembly gathering. President Biden called for an era of international cooperation in tackling global threats in his first address to the United Nations General Assembly as president. “Our security, our prosperity and our very freedoms are interconnected, in my view as never before,” Mr. Biden said. The event is a major test of credibility for Mr. Biden, who was among the first to address the 193-member General Assembly. Many officials who had welcomed the election of President Biden — and his pledge that “America is back” — are now expressing concerns.

AstraZeneca PLC said its breast cancer drug Enhertu significantly reduced the risk of dying or disease progression in women with advanced disease in a large clinical trial, the latest sign that its push into oncology is starting to pay off. For women with metastatic breast cancer, an advanced form of the disease where tumors have spread to other parts of the body, Enhertu reduced the risk of death or tumor progression by 72% compared with Kadcyla, the current standard treatment, the trial found.

The president is also under intense pressure from global health advocates who say donating doses is not enough and want him to scale up manufacturing capacity overseas. Several of the most virulent strains were first identified in lower-income countries, including South Africa and India — both of which have fully vaccinated only 13 percent of their populations. The European Union again objected to a plan to waive the vaccine property rights at a closed-door World Trade Organization meeting last week in Geneva, according to a senior European diplomat familiar with the discussion. The Biden administration has supported a waiver, although not as forcefully as its advocates want. He said European Union officials “would like to kick this discussion further down the road.”“The more we delay in ensuring equitable access, the longer we wait, the longer the pandemic becomes,” Mr. Dangor said last week.

People receive the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine as the Thai resort island of Phuket rushes to vaccinate its population amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, and ahead of a July 1 ending of strict quarantine for overseas visitors, to bring back tourism revenue in Phuket, Thailand, April 2, 2021. Phuket's population was among the first to be inoculated in Thailand, as a pre-requisite for the island to reopen to vaccinated foreign tourists in July. Thailand has turned to unconventional approaches due to problems in supplies, despite manufacturing the AstraZeneca (AZN.L) vaccine locally. Authorities have also decided to administer separate shots of Sinovac's vaccine followed by that of AstraZeneca, a technique yet to be adopted elsewhere. Thailand has reported more than 1.4 million infections and 15,000 deaths, the majority since April this year.

But the United States is not the only country engaging in what some call vaccine nationalism. At Rentschler Biopharma SE, a German contract manufacturer for major pharma companies that is helping to produce CureVac's (5CV.DE) COVID-19 vaccine candidate, the pandemic triggered a review of its procurement routes. We decided to source most of our equipment in Europe so that we are no longer as dependent on the United States," said Chief Executive Frank Mathias, naming sterile bags for bioreactors as an example. Mathias said supply chains collapsed earlier this year when the United States commandeered certain volumes for domestic vaccine producers. In response, Merck in March laid out plans to invest 25 million euros in France to make disposable plastic materials for bioreactors, an essential input for COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing.

"There is no evidence that delaying the second dose has any influence on the risk of TTS," the EMA said.

The health minister called the vaccine milestone a birthday gift for Modi, who turned 71 and was criticised heavily for India's dramatic rise in infections and deaths in April and May. "Every Indian would be proud of today’s record vaccination numbers," Modi said on Twitter. India's previous vaccination peak of 14.1 million was reached on Aug. 31, with a daily average of 7 million doses in the last 30 days. India, which stopped COVID-19 vaccine exports in April, now has the capacity to produce more than 2 billion doses a year. The country of 1.35 billon people has administered more than 792 million doses, the most after China.
