In order to effectively respond to the epidemic and return to normal economic and social life as soon as possible, the UAE, a rich country in the Gulf, was the first to implement national medicine One of the countries in the Phase III clinical trials of inactivated vaccines. In September 2020, the UAE approved the emergency use of Sinopharm vaccine among front-line workers. In early December, a large-scale vaccination site was established nationwide to provide free and orderly access to UAE citizens, residents and even international travelers.Vaccination.
The UAE has a population of 9.3 million, of which the foreign population accounts for 88.5%. As of early January, the number of people vaccinated in Ah has reached about 1 million. The UAE also purchased Pfizer’s BioNTech vaccine.

I look forward to the second vaccination that will begin soon.” Sang Zhuo, a biology lecturer from the United States, also received the Chinese vaccine earlier this month. Before vaccination, she considered the risks and effectiveness of various vaccines. Sang Zhuo said:”I know we may have the opportunity to vaccinate other vaccines in the next few months, but previous studies have told me that the short-term side effects that may occur after vaccination in China are very small. We know that vaccines made using traditional techniques are safe The sex is high and the long-term side effects are minimal. I think that compared to the increasing infection rate, the risk of vaccination is very low.” After the vaccination, Sangzhuo had no other adverse reactions except for slight muscle aches. Sandro said:“As residents of the UAE, we should be vaccinated so that we can return to a normal life.” Olivia, an American who has lived in Dubai for more than ten years, received a second dose of the Chinese vaccine on January 6.

She said:“Because the UAE government has approved this vaccine. I believe in the UAE government and the Chinese government. In my opinion, this vaccine is similar to the flu vaccine and uses traditional vaccines. Technology, not complex genetic technology.”
Professor Chai Shaojin of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Sharjah was a volunteer who participated in the Phase III trial of the Sinopharm vaccine last year. According to him, medical staff from the UAE Ministry of Health, Abu Dhabi Health Service Company (SEHA) and other institutions and volunteers from all over the country have made great efforts to ensure the smooth progress of trials and vaccination.

Standard vaccines are developed, but China has its own style of doing things.”

“China’s new crown vaccine is filling the gap left by Western competitors for poor countries.””New York Times” Such a discussion was made recently. New crown vaccine selection and vaccination do face some difficulties in developing countries such as South Africa. South Africa’s independent media reported recently that South African Minister of Health Mukez said that he has discussed with many pharmaceutical companies around the world to purchase the new crown vaccine. However, Modena and AS Likang all stated that there is no”target” for South Africa this year, and Pfizer agreed to provide 50 million vaccines to South African medical staff after March this year. According to South African media, the”discounted price” of Pfizer’s vaccine to the South African government is US$10, which the South African government still finds too expensive. South Africa’s “Daily Surprise” website wrote and analyzed that it does not make sense to explain South Africa’s delay in obtaining vaccines from a financial perspective. Why some underdeveloped countries in Africa and South America continue to vaccinate the new crown vaccine because of the vaccine selection and vaccination steps in these countries It is more flexible in terms of management, such as trying to buy vaccines from Russia and China,”this is not a strategy to give priority to vaccination.” After the virus has mutated, some South African medical experts said that China’s technology for inactivated vaccines is mature and its ability to respond to virus mutations is also strong. Sinopharm and Kexingdu adopted the technical route of inactivated vaccines. Many foreign media reports mentioned that inactivated vaccines are less likely to be affected when the mutation of the new coronavirus occurs in many parts of the world. This has become an addition to Chinese vaccines. sub option.
The Peruvian government has reached an agreement to purchase the first batch of vaccines with China National Pharmaceutical Group. The total amount of vaccine purchases is 38 million doses, of which 1 million doses will arrive in Peru in the near future. According to the observation of the”Global Times” reporter in Peru, in the next two days, news of the government’s purchase of Chinese vaccines occupied the headlines of major Peruvian media. For example, the headline of”Business Daily” was”The first batch of vaccines finally came this month”, The headline of”Peru 21″ is”Vaccine Gospel”, the headline of”Express” is”We have a vaccine” and so on. Alva, the second vice chairman of the Peruvian Congress, said that Congress will fully support the new crown vaccine vaccination plan and emphasized that all details of the negotiations will be highly transparent. According to Dr. Tycona, head of vaccine clinical trials at the National University of San Marcos in Peru, the efficacy of the new crown vaccine needs to reach 65%before it can enter the market. So far, no vaccine has an effective rate of 100%. He believes that if the effective rate of the vaccine is between 80%and 90%, it is quite good. According to Ticona, since Peru opened the registration channel for vaccine volunteers, the number of volunteers who signed up for the Sinopharm vaccine clinical trial was the largest. They participated in the clinical trials at the National University of San Marcos and Cayetano Heredia University. test. Up to now, Peruvian experts have noticed that some volunteers vaccinated in Europe and the United States and Chinese vaccines have experienced similar headaches, muscle or joint pain, and fatigue. Experts believe that it is normal to have some uncomfortable reactions after vaccination. What is important is its effectiveness and safety. Carlos Durand, chairman of the Peruvian National Chamber of Commerce for Trade, Production, Tourism and Services, said that the Peruvian government announced the purchase of the new crown vaccine from China Sinopharm Group, which has generated positive expectations for the Peruvian business community. He said that the new crown vaccine is a turning point in the economic recovery, which will help accelerate the recovery.
Dr. Mateo, a Peruvian epidemiologist, said in an interview with the”Republic” on January 10 that some people expressed doubts about the Chinese vaccine,”this is an unfounded bias.” He said:”Sinopharm Group has published the first and second phase of the trial research report in the”Lancet” magazine. The magazine is not a Chinese magazine. In short, the vaccine has been published in a prestigious global publication. The material has been recognized by international scholars.” Mateo also said:“Although Peruvians believe that innovation (products) is from developed to developing countries (transition), (vaccine) is developed by Europe and the United States and then purchased by Peru. But in fact China is already a powerful country with many laboratories and excellent scientific research capabilities.”
