The coronavirus outbreak is not taking its name. No vaccine has yet been made for Corona, although the trial of the vaccine is in the final stages. Meanwhile, US health officials are hopeful that who will be the first to develop the vaccine to develop the Covid-19, by which the guidelines will be drafted by the end of next month.
However, he believes it will be an unpleasant decision. Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, said, "Not everyone will like the answer. It is noteworthy that the National Institutes of Health is part of the government's advisory group, which has recently been asked to help in this matter.
Health workers can be given the first vaccine
"There will be many people who believe that they should be placed at the top of the priority list," he said. Traditionally, the list of potential vaccine recipients is health workers and those most at risk of infection.
More affected areas may get priority
However, Collins has come up with a new idea. He wants to prioritize the people most affected by the epidemic and the geographical areas where it has seen the greatest impact.
Also involved in the final phase of vaccine testing are volunteers because a comparison group is needed to tell if the people who have been given the vaccine are working. "We will give them a special priority," Collins said.
Corona vaccine trial continues
It is noteworthy that this summer the purpose of this study is to prove which experimental vaccines of Covid-19 are safe and effective. Moderna Inc. and Pfizer Inc. began testing last week and each test consists of 30 thousand volunteers. Over the next few months, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, and Novavex will also conduct trials with as many volunteers.
Advisory committee constituted for vaccination
Some of the vaccines manufactured in China are also being tested in other countries on a smaller scale. In the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prohibition has set up an advisory committee for vaccination, which will advise the government on vaccination. The government almost always heeds his advice. Misleading information about the vaccine is circulating and there is a fear that there may be politics in it.
Those engaged in essential services may get the first dose of vaccine
Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control, said the public should feel that vaccines are distributed with equality, fairness, and transparency. how will this happen? On this, the Center for Disease Control said in the initial consultation, the first 12 million doses of the vaccine should be given to people seriously ill, engaged in national security, and engaged in other essential services.
The next 11 million doses should be given to those who are most at risk from Covid-19. These include people over 65 years of age, people of any age with poor health. After this, there should be a vaccination of common people.
