A short history of vaccination campaigns in Australia and what we might expect with COVID-19

  A short history of vaccination campaigns in Australia and what we might expect with COVID-19 A vaccine has long been touted as our way out of this global coronavirus pandemic. What have previous vaccination campaigns looked like in Australia, and how might things go this time around?Back at the turn of the 20th century, the average life expectancy of an Australian baby boy was about 55. About one in 10 children died before their first birthday, many from diseases that are now controlled with vaccination.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., confirmed she would take the coronavirus vaccine if it’s approved, after some Democrats have expressed alarm that President Trump is rushing its approval.

“I’m not a big needle taker. I mean, I had a hard time getting my ears pierced. I’m not a big needle fan,” she told reporters at a press conference.

“I mean, they have to talk me into the flu shot under great duress each year — but if it serves as a model to other people, yes I would take the vaccine if it is approved by the regular order of things.”

Fauci on Trump’s Vaccine Boasts: No One’s Seen The Data

  Fauci on Trump’s Vaccine Boasts: No One’s Seen The Data In recent weeks, President Donald Trump has boasted about his administration’s efforts to produce a safe COVID-19 vaccine while simultaneously declaring that the distribution of that vaccine to the American public would happen “very soon.” But Trump has not seen the vaccine data. In fact, no one in the administration has seen it. In an interview with The Daily Beast Monday evening, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said there is only one individual who has access to the data that would show whether a vaccine is viable.“These are blind placebo-controlled trials.

CEO Stephane Bancel said the company does not intend to submit data from its coronavirus vaccine trials to the FDA before November 3. Even so, Bancel told the FT that Americans should not expect that Moderna's shot - even if approved early - will get the FDA green light to distribute to everyone in

The speaker alleged that the Trump administration wants to bypass Phase Three trials that prove the safety of the vaccine, but said she trusts U.S. health officials and drug companies to ensure safety and efficacy.


“I don’t like the pressure that the White House is bringing on all of this and the statements that ‘Maybe we don’t need clinical trials as we normally do, we can just do it two instead of three’ and all that,” she said.

Pelosi added: “Let me salute the scientists at the FDA, and even some of the people at the CDC … who have been there for a long time about the highest caliber of science now backing the FDA working on this initiative."

Here's how Australia could get access to the world's leading coronavirus vaccines through the COVAX facility

  Here's how Australia could get access to the world's leading coronavirus vaccines through the COVAX facility Thanks to a brand new global agreement, Australia has gained potential access to some of the world's leading COVID-19 vaccine candidates. The Federal Government has handed over more than $120 million to join the global vaccines facility known as COVAX, a World Health Organization (WHO) initiative allowing all countries to share not only the costs of vaccine development — but also the benefits.

A vaccine is seen as the most likely avenue for defeating the novel coronavirus and alleviating a worldwide Western regulators have said repeatedly that they do not expect a vaccine to become widely available If Russian scientists have taken an unorthodox route to the coronavirus vaccine

Coronavirus VACCINE that scientists claim can neutralise the deadly virus for at least a year could be approved for human trials 'within months'. The vaccine fires proteins in the body to produce antibodies that fight COVIC-19. It has been designed to be 'highly scalable' with human trials starting in months.

“Let science determine this, not politics, and then people will have confidence in the product,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Democratic presidential ticket has been criticized for sowing fear related to the coronavirus vaccine.

“We can’t allow politics to interfere with the vaccine in any way,” Biden said last month. “Americans have had to endure President Trump’s incompetence and dishonesty when it comes to testing and personal protective equipment. We can’t afford to repeat those fiascos when it comes to a vaccine, when it occurs. The stakes are too high.”


"I trust vaccines. I trust scientists. I don't trust Trump," he said.

While Biden said he trusts vaccines, he added that “this administration is going to have to answer to assure the American people that politics will not play a role whatsoever in the vaccine process.”

Vaccine Chaos Is Looming

  Vaccine Chaos Is Looming The COVID-19 vaccines furthest along in clinical trials are the fastest to make, but they are also the hardest to deploy.On the day that a COVID-19 vaccine is approved, a vast logistics operation will need to awaken. Millions of doses must travel hundreds of miles from manufacturers to hospitals, doctor’s offices, and pharmacies, which in turn must store, track, and eventually get the vaccines to people all across the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with state and local health departments, coordinates this process. These agencies distributed flu vaccines during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic this way, and they manage childhood vaccines every day.

"Having said that we definitely want to avoid people having a flu at the same time as potentially having coronavirus — so having two infections and the body becoming overwhelmed." Every year, seasonal flu contributes to a significant number of hospital presentations and GP visits in Australia.

Nearly every vaccine currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration introduces foreign proteins into a healthy but nonimmune individual. Congratulations: You now produce antibodies to the coronavirus . She says she hopes that Takeda’s product will become available in nine to 18 months.

Those remarks came after his running mate, Kamala Harris, caused controversy by predicting that public health experts will "be muzzled, they’ll be suppressed, they will be sidelined, because [Trump's] looking at an election coming up in less than 60 days, and he’s grasping for whatever he can get to pretend that he’s been a leader on this issue when he’s not."

When asked whether she would get a hypothetical pre-election vaccine, she said: "Well, I think that’s going to be an issue for all of us. I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump and it would have to a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and reliability of whatever he is talking about, I will not take his word for it."

"I would want to see what the scientists said," Biden said separately in response to a question about whether he would take a vaccine approved by the Trump administration. "I want full transparency on the vaccine. One of the problems is the way he's playing with politics. He says so many things that aren't true and I'm worried if we do have a really good vaccine people are going to be reluctant to take it."

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the approval of a coronavirus vaccine for use on Tuesday, claiming it as a "world first," amid continued concern and unanswered questions over its safety and effectiveness.

In a press conference earlier this month Trump promised enough coronavirus vaccine doses for “every American” by April. He predicted availability to begin as soon as early October, directly contradicting a much longer timeline offered earlier in the day by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Robert Redfield.

Redfield told a panel of Senate lawmakers not to expect a coronavirus vaccine to become widely available to most of the U.S. population until the summer of 2021.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said he would bet on a coronavirus vaccine by November or December.


‘‘I would still put my money on November/December,” he said, during a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute panel on global pandemics.
