Guyana wants CDC clarification regarding vaccine use

Guyana Monday said that it needed further clarification from the United States-based Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) so as to administer Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved vaccines to people who have been fully immunised using a vaccine not yet approved by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Health Minister, Dr Frank Anthony, speaking at his daily COVID-19) update, told reporters there needs to be clarity as it relates to the recommendation from the CDC to administer FDA-approved vaccines.
The CDC recently announced that “people who received all or some of the recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not listed for emergency use by WHO and not authorised by FDA may be offered a complete FDA-authorised COVID-19 vaccine series”.
