The vaccines from Covid-19 used for injections among British patients are supposed to be more effective with young people than with the elderly population. Dr. Mary Ramsay, the head of immunisation at Public Health England said this as quoted by Daily Mirror.

According to her, the vaccines are supposed to provide more efficient protection of younger people. "She said the effect, however, would not be as obvious in the data because younger people are less likely to die or fall ill with coronavirus compared with the oldest age groups", reads the story.

The expert also pointed out that there are positive signs of inoculations cutting down the infection rate all over the country. Ramsay believes that ywo doses of vaccine per patient can provide almost full guarantee that people will not get infected anymore.

Meanwhile, Maksym Stepanov, the Healthcare Minister of Ukraine does not rule out that the supply of the first batch of China's Coronavac vaccine may be delayed. He said so during the evening talk show on Tuesday night, as quoted by Interfax-Ukraine.

"According to the contract, we expect the supply of first 700,000 doses within 30 calendar days after the vaccine's registration. The vaccine was registered in China on February 6, which means on March 6, they are supposed to supply these in Ukraine. I charged the officials to sort it out with the contractor, but something tells me there might be a delay", Stepanov said.
