Japan to consider sharing COVID-19 vaccines amid calls to help Taiwan

Officials in Ontario will provide an update on the province's COVID-19 vaccine rollout today.

Masahisa Sato, the head of the Liberal Democratic Party's committee on Taiwan relations, said earlier on Friday that the government should provide Taiwan with vaccines as soon as possible, adding "when Japan was in need, Taiwan sent us 2 million masks".

The original timeline between the first and second doses is 16 weeks.

Ontarians over the age of 80 who haven't already received their second doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will be eligible to do so starting next week, and those 70-plus will be eligible starting June 14.

"These residents also have the option of booking their second dose sooner, should they be able to secure an earlier appointment at a community clinic, or through the Pharmacy channel".

Halton Region works somewhat differently, because booking in Halton (and Oakville) is though our own, faster system than Ontario's provincial booking system.

Premier Doug Ford says they are ahead of their vaccination schedule with some 65% of adults receiving their first shot.

Huyer says the second-dose plan will consider clinical reasons for shortening the interval between doses, supply and allocations across the province.

The ministry has deals to buy 30 million doses and obtain 38.9 million doses through Covax. These individuals included health workers.

Croziers was initially scheduled to receive his second dose in July. For example, this included individuals aged 50 and over, as well as individuals with high-risk health conditions. For example, this included individuals who can not work from home and individuals who have at-risk health conditions. The interval switches to a 12-week period for anyone who received AstraZeneca after March 19 and will be delivered using the same "first in, first out" method.

Statistics from Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that the continent has acquired 43.5 million vaccine doses and has administered 28.2 million as of Wednesday.

In a statement to CTV News Ottawa Friday afternoon, Di Monte said the city is trying to determine whether the accelerated timeline for second doses could delay first doses for some residents.

Speaking at POLITICO Live's virtual panel "Health in the EU's post-COVID-19 recovery", Delsaux said that the Commission is taking the vaccine-maker to court to send a message that this lapse was "serious" and grounds for legal action.

"We believe that Ontario can re-open schools safely on a regional basis to mitigate the significant short and long-term harms arising from school closures, while managing the risk of virus transmission in this sector", the group said in a letter to Ford released Saturday.

Ontario does not now report how many cases of the B.1.617 variant, originally found in India, are found in the province.
