At the State Council’s joint prevention and control mechanism press conference on the 21st, Mi Feng, spokesperson for the National Health Commission, introduced that my country’s new crown vaccination has exceeded 200 million doses so far. The global epidemic is still in a high-level epidemic. The number of new confirmed cases worldwide has risen for 8 consecutive weeks. Among them, 5.26 million new cases were added last week, which is the highest in a single week since the outbreak. New variants of the virus continue to appear. External defense imports and internal defenses rebound. The task is arduous, and we must accelerate the promotion of new crown vaccination.
Compared with the United Kingdom and the United States, the number of vaccinations seems to be quite large. However, due to the huge population base in my country, the vaccination rate is much lower than that of the United Kingdom and the United States, and the partial group immunization is calculated based on the vaccination rate. The rate must reach 70%-80% to produce herd immunity. In response to the new crown epidemic prevention and control and vaccination, Wang Huaqing, chief expert of the China Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s immunization program, said: Although the number of people vaccinated on a single day in my country has increased rapidly, the vaccination rate has reached 40% or even 6%. Compared with ten countries, it is still at a low level. The reasons for the low vaccination rate in my country 1) my country has a large population base of more than 1.3 billion people, and the population base is large, and the inactivated vaccines and recombinant subunit vaccines currently vaccinated by most people need to be vaccinated 2 to 3 times. It takes 14 to 21 days before the next injection, so the time required for vaccination will be relatively long, and it will take some time to achieve herd immunity. 2) Vaccine production is gradually increasing, but the supply issue is still the top priority. At the Vaccine and Health Conference recently held in Chengdu, Gao Fu, director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, mentioned three important factors in the current large-scale vaccination of COVID-19. Links: First, enterprises must turn production capacity into products; second, regulatory agencies must turn products into vaccines; third, disease control departments must deliver vaccines to all people. He emphasized the first point, that is, the problem of vaccine supply, which is currently the most urgent matter. my country currently has 5 new coronavirus vaccines. The annual production capacity announced by Sinopharm Beijing Biotech and Kexing Zhongwei totals 2 billion doses. Together with the production capacity of Wuhan Biotech, Kangsino, and Zhifeilong Kema, the monthly supply should be at least 150 million doses. It seems that there should be a supply of leverage, which is not a problem, but the reality is very skinny, because there is a problem with a link! This is a key detail of vaccine production: that is the production capacity of vaccine stock solution. Our total supply is no problem, but it must be filled into vaccine bottles before it can become a vaccine product for vaccination. The current filling line is too late. Filling is the bottleneck of vaccine supply. The solution of this bottleneck problem requires the joint efforts of the drug regulatory authorities and pharmaceutical companies, so that the problem of tight supply of China’s COVID-19 vaccine can be quickly resolved at the lowest cost. 3) The phenomenon of “vaccine hesitation” Many people are still hesitant to face the new crown vaccine (perhaps you are struggling), and there are questions like this: Can milk allergies be treated? Can depression be treated with medicine? Can I fight for pregnancy? Can I fight during lactation? ……We have collected and sorted out the 150 hot vaccination questions that everyone cares about the most, and answer them all at once! Having mastered this “Book of Vaccines”, you are not modestly speaking, you are half an expert on the new crown vaccine!
