More than 700,000 AstraZeneca vaccines sent to Australia from UK despite shortage

The shipment was allegedly kept quiet to avoid controversy as Britain faces slowdown in rollout due to supply issues

More than 700,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine have been sent to Australia despite a shortage of jabs in the UK.

Australia’s vaccine rollout was boosted by a shipment from Britain that was kept quiet to avoid controversy, according to reports in the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock, on Thursday morning, did not deny the 717,000 doses manufactured in the UK had been sent to Australia but said it was not the Government who made the shipment.

Unfortunately, the Government statistics show differently - hopefully, this is a blip, and it will get back to previous rates.

In the week ending 21st March an additional 3,053,371 people were reported to have received an NHS vaccination for COVID-19 in England (first dose 2,539,057)

In the week ending 28th March an additional 3,509,245 NHS vaccinations for COVID19 (both first and second doses) were administered in England (first dose 2,200,416)

In the week ending 4th April an additional 2,131,838 NHS vaccinations for COVID-19 (both first and second doses) were reported in England (first dose 670,745)

Re: Coronavirus

There has always been an anticipated dip around now based on published (and then unpublished) data from Scotland in January. Scaling up from the population share of 10% the UK figures would look something like this:

W/C
22/02 1.9m
01/03 4.4m
08/03 4.3m
15/03 1.2m
22/03 4.6m
29/03 2.3m
04/04 4.1m
11/04 1.6m
18/04 3.9m
25/04 3.9m
Then 3.4m thereafter.

Re: Coronavirus

Probably because of the need to get the 2nd dose into people in the agreed time period.

Don't forget to add Easter to the equation, basically when people had other things on their mind for 4 days. Bound to have an effect.

Yesterday over 400,000 second doses were given. Don't know the first dose figure but it looks like an Easter weekend blip.

Excellent news - thanks for the update.

5pm COVID round-up

UK vaccination tally hits new milestone

Six million people are now fully vaccinated, with the number having had both doses now 6,091,905. It was reached after 408,396 second jabs were administered, the second highest daily total to date.

Vaccination data shows 31,807,124 have had a first dose, up from the 31.7 million reported yesterday.
Looks like 107k first doses, 408k second doses - 515k in total.

Re: Coronavirus

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-says-brussels

Sounds like now our vaccination campaign and supplies from Moderna has sufficiently progressed the AstraZeneca (née Oxford) vaccine can go wherever it wants.

Now that we have a choice we are the ones questioning it’s safety and perhaps undermining the global vaccination effort. The world doesn’t have a compliant press to wave an equivalent to the Union Flag to deflect, deny and rally the crowds. Maybe toxic British nationalism has had a benefit after all as the benefits do outweigh the risks if you’ve no alternative .

As I noted as far back as January - we simply didn’t have a vaccination programme without it. Something of obvious importance to the Tory backbenchers - of even more value than making an informed choice.

If anything harms AstraZeneca (née Oxford)’s future sales it’s that they, and the apparatus of the a British state, were happy to suppress and belittle the legitimate concerns of regulatory bodies around the world. Coupled with selective efficacy values, and making a mess of almost every press release going, being the cheapest on the market in the biggest global health concern since 1918 might not cut the mustard given the significant economic impacts of the pandemic.

For a pharmaceutical company worth 94 billion quid the “plucky upstarts” line will not fly. They’re an experienced pharmaceutical company.
