The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is making recommendations to the states that our members be among the first to receive a vaccine . August 23, 2021 – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older. The vaccine continues to be available under emergency use authorization for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals. The CDC also says anyone with Covid-19 symptoms or who test positive should wear masks, regardless of vaccination status or the risk level where they live. Masks are recommended, not mandated, indoors in areas with high Covid community levels under new CDC guidelines released in February. The CDC updated its Covid Community Levels map on Thursday showing areas where Covid is at a “high” , “medium” or “low” risk.
Novartis is supporting candidates during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. During this time interviews will continue as planned and, where appropriate, will be switched to virtual interviews using readily available technology. The coronavirus crisis has not only challenged the medical community to seek new treatments and vaccines. It must be given intravenously soon after developing symptoms. Though no one is invulnerable, we’ve seen that older adults are at increased risk for severe illness or death from COVID-19. Underlying conditions, including heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes, increase risk even further in those who are older.

Now more than ever is the time for bold international cooperation to bridge the energy access gap and place sustainable energy at the heart of economic stimulus and recovery measures. The five custodian agencies of the report were designated by the UN Statistical Commission to compile and verify country data, along with regional and global aggregates, in relation to the progress in achieving the SDG 7 goals. This collaborative work highlights once more the importance of reliable data to inform policymaking as well as the opportunity to enhance data quality through international cooperation to further strengthen national capacities.

Potential herd-immunity timelines are bifurcating as a result of growth in variants that may reduce vaccine efficacy. However, if the impact of these variants is significant, we could see timelines significantly prolonging into late 2021 or beyond. The surge of COVID-19 cases resulting from the spread of the Delta variant and from vaccine hesitancy brought a sudden, tragic end to the transition toward normalcy that some countries had begun to make. But the United Kingdom’s experience indicates that a transition toward normalcy may yet be possible before long, at least in countries where the vaccine rollout is well under way. Their task will be determining what burden of disease is low enough to warrant lifting of public-health restrictions, and how to manage the public-health impacts of endemic COVID-19. In countries where vaccination rates remain low, the prospects for ending the pandemic remain largely tied to the availability and administration of additional doses.
