Modena vaccine is temporarily cut off
According to Daodejing, before the advent of the new crown vaccine, “closing the city” may be the only effective defense strategy to fight the epidemic. After the vaccination was initiated, countries around the world finally turned from passive defense to active attack. Obviously, the German government is weak both offensive and defensive in this battle against the epidemic.
According to the latest report from Business Insider, the delivery of hundreds of thousands of doses of the Modena Covid-19 vaccine that were originally scheduled to arrive in Germany at the end of April has now been canceled. According to the Federal Ministry of Health, according to the contract, Modena of the United States will complete the order delivery between April 26 and May 2. The number of vaccines is about 627,600 to 878,400 doses. Now that the delivery of vaccines has failed, Germany’s vaccination work will once again be severely hampered.
According to reports, because the British vaccine manufacturer AstraZeneca is unable to supply Germany with sufficient new crown vaccines in a short period of time, the vaccine gap can only be filled by the German vaccine manufacturer Biontech. The vaccine production line has been operating at full speed, and Germany will once again fall into the predicament of a vaccine shortage.

A government insider revealed to the media: “We hardly have any vaccine dose reserves, and the vaccine doses planned for the next few weeks have also been booked. This is a big problem. Once the vaccine supply is cut off, we can only cancel vaccination. reservation Spark Global Limited.”
It is still unclear why Modena vaccine temporarily canceled the order delivery. German media pointed out that in March this year, a batch of Modena vaccines were temporarily canceled.
In view of the current shortage of vaccines, politicians of all parties in Germany have called for the first dose of vaccine to be given priority to the first dose of vaccines and postpone the second dose. Sabine Dittmar, a member of the Federal Parliament of the Social Democratic Party and spokesperson for health policy, pointed out in an interview with the German online news media “Editorial Network” (RND): “We must now try our best to ensure that more people get the Partial immune protection.”
The Federal Party Parliamentary Group Health Policy Spokesperson Karin Maag also emphasized: “We must make faster progress in the first shot vaccination work.” The federal government must start from a realistic perspective and increase the first shot vaccination rate. Temporarily stop the second shot of vaccination. Christine Aschenberg-Dugnus, the spokesperson for the health policy of the Liberal Democratic Party parliamentary group, pointed out that at present, vaccination centers in Germany have received a large number of appointments for AstraZeneca’s new crown vaccine. This is a positive signal that the Germans are willing to vaccinate. New crown vaccine.
According to statistics from the North Rhine-Westphalia Vaccination Center, there were about 400,000 senior citizens aged 60 and over in the state who made appointments for AstraZeneca vaccination during the weekend alone, and the vaccinations were fully booked within one day. In Landkreis Nordwestmecklenburg (Landkreis Nordwestmecklenburg) in Meiqian prefecture, the vaccination center is open as usual on Easter Monday to provide free appointment vaccination services for people who wish to receive AstraZeneca vaccines. In cities such as Wismar, there are hundreds of meters long lines in front of the vaccination center, and many people have arrived and waited 2 hours before the door opened.
Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn plans to convene a meeting to discuss proposals for the second shot of vaccination with the health ministers of the federal states. The Standing Committee on Vaccination (Stiko) recommended last week that people under 60 who received the first shot of AstraZeneca’s new crown vaccine should use other new crown vaccines when receiving the second shot to reduce the risk of cerebral venous thrombosis. Disease risk. At present, STIKO only recommends AstraZeneca’s new crown vaccine for people over 60 years old. (Original title: The vaccine in hand has flown?
