Would you get the COVID-19 vaccine once it's available?

Recommended Posts

It is just a fallacy that we can depend on the Chinese vaccine to save us.

China's Sinopharm publishes awaited COVID vaccine trial data; fails to cover vulnerable groups:       https://in.news.yahoo.com/chinas-sinopharm-publishes-awaited-covid-124320924.html

"The authors of the study said that the trial was mainly conducted in healthy, young men and there was insufficient power to test the efficacy among those with chronic diseases, women, older adults, those in other geographic populations, and those with previous SARS-CoV-2 infections, SCMP reported."

17. We would like to clarify that the WHO EUL pathway focusses on the needs of low- and middle-income countries with limited access to COVID-19 vaccines. It is a risk-based process that expedites the assessment of vaccines for use in a pandemic especially in these countries, where the benefits are deemed to outweigh the risks, despite uncertainties about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine. Healthcare regulators in many developed jurisdictions, including Singapore, typically conduct further rigorous evaluations beyond WHO EUL approval before approving a vaccine for general use.

Saudi Arabia and EU bars travelers who received Chinese-made jabs

Despite its quick and responsive supply chain, Chinese vaccines are not seen as effective by the EU and Saudi Arabia.

As some countries ease Covid-19 travel restrictions, Saudi Arabia and the European Union have barred travellers who have been vaccinated with Chinese vaccines, leaving out the biggest groups of foreign visitors in the regions.

Last week, Saudi Arabia updated its travel restrictions, which included requirements to take Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson in order to enter the country, leaving out China’s five vaccines including the widely used Sinovac and Sinopharm.

After the announcement, Pakistan’s foreign ministry on Sunday asked the kingdom to include Chinese vaccines to its list, as those vaccines are widely used in the country.

Malaysia also echoed similar concerns as its government sought to discuss the issue with Saudi Arabia.

Thiravat Hemachudha, director of the Health Science Centre of Emerging Diseases at Chulalongkorn University, revealed that many people who had received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine for three to four weeks showed no neutralising antibody, or at only 20-30 per cent.

For a vaccine to be effective, the ability to inhibit a virus must be more than 20 per cent to develop immunity.

No wonder China didn't want to share the data with us.

If the results were good, no need to ask they send already.

No good they will say its on the way, its on the way.
