|Sinovacs COVID-19 vaccine highly effective against serious illness: study |
Sinovacs COVID-19 vaccine is highly effective against serious illness, although rival shots from Pfizer/BioNTech and AstraZeneca showed better protection rates, a large real world study from Malaysia showed. The latest data is a boost to the Chinese firm, whose COVID-19 vaccine has been under growing scrutiny over its effectiveness following reports of infections among healthcare workers fully immunized with the Sinovac shot in Indonesia and Thailand. The study, conducted by the Malaysian government, found that 0.011% of about 7.2 million recipients of the Sinovac shot required treatment in intensive care units (ICU) for COVID-19 infections, health officials told reporters on Thursday. By contrast, 0.002% of about 6.5 million recipients of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine needed ICU treatment for COVID-19 infections, while 0.001% of 744,958 recipients of the AstraZeneca shot required similar treatment. Kalaiarasu Peariasamy, a director at the Institute for Clinical Research that conducted the study along with a national COVID-19 taskforce, said vaccinations regardless of the brand have reduced the risk of admission to intensive care by 83% and lowered the risk of death by 88% based on a smaller study involving about 1.26 million people. The breakthrough rate for intensive care unit admission is extremely low, he said, adding overall ICU admissions among fully vaccinated individuals stood at 0.0066%. Mortality rate of the fully vaccinated people was also low at 0.01% and the majority of them were either above 60 years of age or with comorbidities. There were differences in the demographics of the recipients of the three vaccines and it could have resulted in the different results, Kalaiarasu said. Many of AstraZeneca recipients were in the mid-adulthood age, while the Pfizer and Sinovac shots were very much for the vulnerable population, he said. AstraZeneca recipients also accounted for a much smaller proportion of the study, which involved about 14.5 million fully vaccinated individuals and conducted for more than five months since April 1. In July, Malaysia said it will stop administering the Sinovac vaccine once its supplies end, as it has a sufficient number of other vaccines for its programme. The Sinovac vaccine has been widely used in several countries including China, Indonesia, Thailand and Brazil, and the company said earlier this month it had supplied 1.8 billion doses at home and abroad. Malaysia has fully vaccinated 58.7% of its 32 million population and gave at least one dose to 68.8%.

|CanSinoBIO COVID-19 vaccine, tested at lower dosage, safe for children: study |
CanSinoBIOs single-dose COVID-19 vaccine, given at a lower dosage than that for adults, is safe and triggers an immune response in children aged 6-17, results from a small trial showed. Researchers decided to lower the dosage after a few participants developed fever and headaches graded at level 2 severity the second-lowest of four levels. In children, the lower dose triggered higher antibody levels than the dosage approved for use in adults in China, according to the peer-reviewed finding from a mid-stage trial. The trial recruited 150 children and around 300 adults. The results also showed that children given one lower dose had a stronger antibody response than adults who were given a booster shot 56 days after the first dose. But the antibody readings did not show to what extent the vaccine can offer protection against COVID-19, researchers from a Chinese disease control agency, CanSinoBIO and other Chinese institutes cautioned in a paper. CanSinoBIOs vaccine has not yet got the greenlight for children. China has approved two vaccines, developed by Sinovac and Sinopharm, for use in children from the age of three but vaccinations have yet to begin for those under 12. The paper said the booster shot for CanSinoBIOs vaccine improved antibody responses in participants of different age groups, especially for older adults. But cellular responses, another important part of human immune system, were not boosted by the second shot and researchers said a wider interval than 56 days should be considered.

Even before the epidemic turned our worlds upside down, France was one of the most vaccine-hesitant countries in the world. Its a real paradox in a nation that was home to scientist Louis Pasteur and his pioneering discoveries in immunology. In this episode of French Connections Plus, Florence Villeminot and Genie Godula take a stab at where this vaccine hesitancy comes from and why it's so hard to cure.

Covid-19 vaccine hesitancy waned between late 2020 and early 2021, in a US study of more than 3,000 people. Nearly one in three who were first hesitant had been vaccinated, and more than one in three moved to being willing to be jabbed, when they were surveyed again in March-April 2021. The remainder said they were still unlikely to get the jab. The authors note that vaccines weren't available to all who took part until after the follow-up survey, which is a limitation.
