A 12-year old girl receives the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine in New York City on May 14th, 2021. Half of Americans aged 12 and older are now fully vaccinated, according to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday. The CDC signed off on expanded usage of Pfizer and BioNTech's Covid-19 vaccine for 12- to 15-year-olds in mid-May, widening the age range of the population eligible for a shot. U.S. share of the population vaccinatedAbout 52% of the U.S. population has received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine and 42% is fully vaccinated, CDC data shows. Those numbers jump to 61% with one shot or more and 50% fully inoculated for the eligible 12 and older population.

J&J vaccine drive stalls out in U.S after safety pause
  + stars: | 2021-06-07 | by ( Michael Erman | ) + 0.00   time to read: +6 min
Demand for all the vaccines has slowed since mid-April, but the drop has been significantly steeper for the J&J shot. The slowdown may mean some J&J doses will expire unused at a time when global demand for any COVID-19 vaccine is high. J&J doses will be among the 25 million donated by the United States announced by the White House last Thursday. Not everyone has seen a sharp drop-off in demand for the J&J vaccine. read moreU.S. regulators are deciding whether it is safe to release up to 100 million doses of J&J's vaccine produced at that plant.

REUTERS/Carlos OsorioChile's public health regulator on Monday approved the use of Pfizer (PFE.N) and BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine for teenagers, it said in a statement, as the country races to hit a target of herd immunity by July. The Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine has already been rolled out in Chile for those 17 and older since emergency approval was granted in December and will now be offered for children aged 12 to 16, the ISP regulator said. The ISP said its decision followed similar authorization granted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency. The ISP's director, Heriberto Garcia, said the decision would help Chile hit its goal of herd immunity with 80% of the target population vaccinated by July. So far, 10.5 million people - 69% of the target population - have received one dose of COVID-19 vaccine in Chile, and 7.9 million, or 52.3%, have received two, according to health ministry figures.

William Shakespeare, the first man to get publicly vaccinated for COVID-19, has died. He died of an unrelated illness, according to the BBC. The first man to get publicly vaccinated for COVID-19 died of an unrelated illness last Thursday, the BBC reported. The man, named William Shakespeare, was the second person to receive Pfizer BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine out of clinical trials. Shakespeare, who went by Bill, received the vaccine not long after 90-year-old Margaret Keenan received the first shot at the same hospital.

REUTERS/Hannah BeierSome teenagers and young adults who received COVID-19 vaccines experienced heart inflammation, a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory group said, recommending further study of the rare condition. The CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices in a statement dated May 17 said it had looked into reports that a few young vaccine recipients, predominantly adolescents and young adults, and predominantly male, developed myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle. The condition often goes away without complications and can be caused by a variety of viruses, the CDC group said. Israel's Health Ministry in April said it was examining a small number of cases of heart inflammation in people who had received Pfizer's vaccine, though it had not yet drawn any conclusions. read moreEarlier this month U.S. regulators expanded authorization of Pfizer and BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine to children aged 12 to 15. read moreThe New York Times earlier reported on the CDC statement.

A person receives a vaccine against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at a sports hall in Berlin, Germany, May 14, 2021. The decision to end the prioritization in Germany's vaccination campaign does not mean everybody will get vaccinated immediately in June, Spahn said, pointing to ongoing logistical and supply bottlenecks. But Spahn repeated the government's pledge that every citizen who wants to get vaccinated should get a COVID-19 shot in the course of the summer. The minister added that authorities were already discussing when and how to allow COVID-19 vaccinations for adolescents between the ages of 12 and 16. The European Union's drug regulator, the European Medicines Agency (EMA), is aiming to approve Pfizer (PFE.N) and BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine for use children as young as 12-years-old in June, possibly even at the end of this month.

(CNN) Nearly all states require some form of parental or guardian consent for vaccine providers to administer Covid-19 shots to people ages 12 to 15, a CNN analysis finds. CNN reached out to all 50 states about their laws regarding parental consent to vaccinate people ages 12 to 15. Expanding authorization to people 12 to 15 opened Covid-19 vaccination to another 5% of the US population, nearly 17 million more people. In a couple of states CNN contacted, Alabama and Tennessee , teens 14 and older can be vaccinated without needing parental consent. "As a pediatrician, this is certainly not a new issue," Costello told CNN about parental consent.

A general view of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia September 30, 2014. REUTERS/Tami Chappell/File PhotoAdvisors to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will meet on Wednesday to discuss recommendations for the use of Pfizer (PFE.N) and partner BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine in children aged 12 to 15. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) provides recommendations to the CDC that many states will consider as they begin administering the two-shot vaccine to adolescents this week. Children have been considered by health officials as being at a lower risk for severe COVID-19, but they can still spread the virus. The committee will hear from Pfizer about the vaccine's safety and efficacy in adolescents and will consider the views of a handful of CDC officials on its implementation.

Vaccine distribution will vary in the U.S., officials told reporters, because states have different regulations on who can administer shots to younger age groups. The FDA said side effects in adolescents were consistent with those reported in clinical trial participants who were 16 and older. When will younger kids get access? Approval by the FDA for kids under age 12 could come in the second half of this year. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, whose vaccines are authorized for people 18 and older, are also testing their shots in younger age groups.

Please refresh the page if you do not see a player above at that time.] A key CDC advisory panel is scheduled to vote Wednesday on whether to recommend expanding usage of Pfizer's and BioNTech's Covid-19 vaccine to kids ages 12 to 15. The endorsement from CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which is widely expected, is the last step before U.S. officials give states the thumbs up to open vaccinations to millions of adolescents as early as Thursday. Allowing adolescents to get the shots will accelerate the nation's efforts to drive down infections and return to some form of normalcy, public health officials and infectious disease experts say. It also allows states to get middle school students vaccinated before summer camps begin and school starts in the fall

After weeks of declines, the U.S. pace of daily vaccinations is improving in recent days. The country is reporting an average of 2.2 million shots per day over the past week, federal data shows, up slightly from the most recent low reported Saturday, when it dipped below 2 million for the first time since early March. An endorsement is the last step before officials give states the go-ahead to open vaccinations to millions of adolescents as early as Thursday. U.S. vaccine shots administeredCDC data shows the U.S. is averaging 2.2 million reported daily vaccinations over the past week, down 35% from the peak level in mid-April but up over the past few days. While too early to say whether this recent uptick will turn into a steady trend, the data does show an increase in reported first doses, indicating that new people are entering a vaccination program.

During Wednesday's meeting, CDC officials said there were no serious adverse events associated with the Pfizer-BioNTech shot in 12- to 15- year olds out of more than 2,000 children in the companies' clinical trial. With the exception of pain at the injection site, more adolescents reported side effects after the second dose than after the first. Children make up around 20% of the total U.S. population of 331 million, according to government data. Roughly 115 million American adults are fully vaccinated, according to the CDC. CDC officials told the panel that research shows vaccine hesitancy among parents, with only about 46% to 60% who said they wanted to get their kids vaccinated.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday urged parents to get their children vaccinated, shortly before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved the use of Pfizer and BioNTech's Covid-19 vaccine for adolescents ages 12 to 15. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky gave her final approval to the endorsement later in the day. During a press conference, Biden said the endorsement was "one more giant step in our fight against the pandemic." Nearly 17 million Americans are now eligible to get vaccinated, Biden said during a speech on the White House's Covid-19 response and vaccination campaign. Roughly 115 million American adults are fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky defended the agency's Covid-19 mask guidance policies amid widespread criticism from lawmakers and health officials. "These issues are complex, the science is evolving, the science is moving, and we are following the science each and every day and our guidance is evolving as the science evolves," said Walensky during a Wednesday interview on CNBC's "The News with Shepard Smith." Nearly 59% of adults have received at least one vaccine, according to the CDC. The CDC chief also signaled to host Shepard Smith that guidelines will be changing soon, following the agency's endorsement of administering Pfizer and BioNTech's Covid-19 vaccine to adolescents aged 12 to 15. Smith also asked Walensky why, if everyone in his office was vaccinated, they still had to wear masks indoors.

REUTERS/Mike SegarThe World Health Organization has listed Moderna’s (MRNA.O) COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use, the agency said on Friday, the fifth to be given the status meant to expedite countries’ own approval of shots. The WHO's Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) already in January had recommended Moderna's vaccine for all age groups 18 and above. Pfizer (PFN.N) and its German partner BionTech's (22UAy.DE) shot, also an mRNA vaccine like Moderna's, was the first vaccine to get a WHO emergency use listing in the final hours of 2020. Since then, the WHO has added vaccines from Astrazeneca-SK Bio, Serum Institute of India and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ.N) vaccines to the list. The Geneva-based health organization is still considering COVID-19 vaccines from Sinopharm (1099.HK) and Sinovac (SVA.O) following an extended review, with decisions due by the end of next week.

Nonetheless, for healthy, fully vaccinated people, the fear of catching Covid-19 should not be paralyzing, said Vaile Wright, a clinical psychologist and the senior director of health care innovation at the American Psychological Association. The deaths represent less than 0.0001 percent of all fully vaccinated people. Last week, the New England Journal of Medicine documented two fully vaccinated people with breakthrough cases tied to variants; both had mild symptoms. At that point, the CDC says, fully vaccinated people can attend small indoor gatherings, unmasked, with other fully vaccinated people, or even with unvaccinated people who are healthy and are not at risk for severe complications of Covid-19, such as young grandchildren. Next month, he and his partner hope to have a movie night at their home with a few other fully vaccinated friends.
