  1. Malaria vaccine hailed as potential breakthrough COPYRIGHTGETTY IMAGES A malaria vaccine has proved to be 77% effective in early trials and could be a major breakthrough against the disease, says the University of Oxford team behind it. Malaria kills more than 400,000 people a year, mostly children in sub-Saharan Africa. But despite many vaccines being trialled over the years, this is the first to meet the required target.

  4. India's second wave hits the whole world through vaccine export curbs Facing a brutal new wave of coronavirus cases, India on Thursday made anyone over 45 eligible for vaccination. But the scramble to vaccinate as many people as possible has also meant sharply curtailing exports. Why it matters: The hopes of vaccinating the world have largely fallen on the shoulders of India, a vaccine manufacturing powerhouse and home to the world’s largest producer, the Serum Institute. Until recently, India was exporting most of the doses it was producing — a mix of donations

  7. Coronavirus: Latest data shows vaccine reduces transmission - Hancock There is "early data" showing a reduction in transmission in people who have had a coronavirus vaccine, the health secretary has said.

  9. Everyone should worry that Indians aren’t taking their second vaccine doses On Jan. 16, India started its vaccination drive against Covid-19, administering preliminary doses to nearly 200,000 healthcare workers, and reminding them to come back on Feb. 13 for their second shots. But when that date rolled around, fewer than 8,000 returned—a measly 4% of the total. By Monday morning (Feb. 15), the proportion had improved, but only just: 24,561 healthcare workers got their second shot out of the 224,301 who ought to have received it, or just over 10%.

Clary/AFP (Getty Images) It’s no secret that New York City, like many other places in the U.S., has been having a hard time with covid-19 vaccine distribution. One of the problems is its messy online sign-up website, which some city officials have denounced as “complex, burdensome, and buggy.
  12. Why you're seeing COVID-19 vaccine selfies all over Facebook and Twitter Misinformation on vaccines has run rampant on the internet, but some people are hoping vaccine selfies could help open a dialogue with skeptics.
