The five-person board of the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency unanimously decided late Monday that consistent and trustworthy data required was lacking for approval of the requests from 10 states, according to a statement. Another four states and two cities have also sought authorization to import the vaccine.
and: It takes control funds in hand to hedge the pre-contracts, although their Ministry of Finance warns. Other countries like Bavaria Markus Söder (CSU) and Saxons Michael Kretschmer (CDU) would be well avoided in the case of Sputnik to risk taxes as they assume.Double departure of agreements in the federal government and in the EU
This double-breather from the Germans like the European agreements is irritating after the course of debates for Sputnik. In the first quarter, alacked, it was wise to look after each additional option. Now, in May, there are only vaccines that can be delivered quickly at the moment, which can be delivered quickly. So that are approved or stand for a short time. And either produced in anticipation of admission to stock or can be produced quickly.
Vaccines aplenty but some Californians struggle to get one
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Hearing of excess vaccine and unfilled appointments frustrates Dr. Aaron Roland, a family physician who has been lobbying for doses to inoculate his patients, many of whom are low-income, immigrants or elderly. The San Francisco Bay Area doctor has more than 200 patients who have inquired when he will offer inoculations against the coronavirus. One patient, who is 67, said he walked into a Safeway supermarket because signs said doses were available.
Because from the summer already approved vaccines are available in larger quantities than required, in any case in Germany and in Europe. How meaningful is there to conclude preliminary contracts about large quantities of Sputnik doses? And investing taxes?EU Commissioner: If Sputnik ever comes, then late
The EU and the Federal Government have come to this assessment. If Sputnik comes at all, then too late. So Russian vaccine is no longer used, emphasized. Because it is unlikely that it can be admitted soon to the EU, because so far no studies on effects and side effects have been presented to patients who meet the applicable standards.

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Russia is turning to multiple Chinese firms to manufacture the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine in an effort to speed up production as demand soars for its shot. Russia has announced three deals totaling 260 million doses with Chinese vaccine companies in recent weeks.

AngelaSöder and Kretschmer go to distance : The federal government will decide only after an approval by the European drug authority EMA, whether he orders Sputnik and in which quantities. Landesfürsten, who had previously strongly stirred the drum for the Russian vaccine, ruddle now strikingly back.
Markus Söder said a few days ago before the association Berlin merchants and industrialists (VBKI), in Bavaria has not flowed in Bavaria as he has been for building a Sputnik production in a pharmaceuttic work in Illertissen at Neu- Ulm used and negotiated via options for vaccine doses.
Michael Kretschmer, who had been severely criticizedWithout EMA approval No liberation from Corona editions , keeps himself against the accusation, he had sideline politics and independently ordered vaccine doses. He did not closed forward contracts and hold themselves to the agreement that only the federal government Vakzines order abroad.
added: Without EMA approval, vaccination with Sputnik also does not liberate from the corona pads. Who will be vaccinated with Sputnik when BionTech Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and Astra Zeneca are elected?
Manuela Schwesig's solitary walk in terms of Sputnik looks elsewhere in the face of the growing skepticism like a ghost drive. And comes.
