    To Fight Vaccine Lies, Authorities Recruit an ‘Influencer Army’

    In March, the White House also orchestrated an Instagram Live chat between Dr. Fauci and Eugenio Derbez, a Mexican actor with over 16.6 million Instagram followers who had been openly doubtful of the vaccines. During their 37-minute discussion, Mr. Derbez was upfront about his concerns. “What if I get the vaccine, but it doesn’t protect me against the new variant?” he asked. Dr. Fauci acknowledged that the vaccines might not completely shield people from variants, but said, “It’s very, very good at protecting you from getting seriously ill.” Understand the State of Vaccine Mandates in the U.S. Mr. Flaherty

    Establishment of a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine technology transfer hub to scale up global manufacturing

    WHO and its partners are seeking to expand the capacity of low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to produce COVID-19 vaccines and scale up manufacturing to increase global access to these critical tools to bring the pandemic under control. WHO will facilitate the establishment of one (or more, as appropriate) technology transfer1 hub(s) that will  use a hub and spoke model (REF) to transfer a comprehensive technology package and provide appropriate training to interested manufacturers in LMICs. This initiative will initially prioritize the mRNA-vaccine technology2 but could expand to other technologies in the future. The intention is for these

    Oregon woman vows to help seniors get COVID vaccine

    An Oregon woman is doing what she can to break down the technological barriers that may challenge seniors trying to make an appointment to get vaccinated. PORTLAND, Ore. — When Monday’s window for booking vaccine appointments opens, it will put tech and computer skills for Oregonians, 80 years old and over, to the test. That is, assuming they have computers at all. Elizabeth Kennedy-Midkiff can only think about how overwhelmed her grandmother would have been. “She was 95, had never had a computer and didn’t know how to use a computer,” she said in an interview Friday.
