Russia-Ukraine war: PAHO (Pan American Health Organization) delivered bad news on Sputnik V vaccine approval. What will happen to those who received this vaccine and have limited travel options. Some 11 million Argentines received it....According to what was confirmed to Clarín by PAHO, there will be no news about Sputnik until the war is over. At least, until the conditions are right for a group to travel to Russian soil and inspect not only the sanitary aspect that made noise before, but also to check if the war conflict affected the product that goes into those injections, which are still being applied in our country today....

City of BA and Province of BA are already applying the fourth dose against Covid: who will receive it? Up to now, 38% of the population has received the third dose of the Covid vaccine in ARG. As an additional dose or as a booster, it has been proven that this injection is necessary to be protected more with the arrival of autumn and an eventual increase of coronavirus infections....two specific groups: immunosuppressed (due to autoimmune disease, transplants or oncology treatments) and those over 50 who received the first and second doses of Sinopharm will receive it. What happens for the rest? While in the world science is still debating the efficacy of a fourth dose and whether or not there will be an annual vaccine against Covid, the National Immunization Commission (CoNaIn) confirmed to Clarín that, due to the current epidemiological situation, there will be no fourth doses for the rest of the Argentine population in the immunization planning horizon. The National Ministry of Health told this newspaper that "there is no national or international scientific evidence to move forward with second boosters for everyone"....

As announced by the Minister of Health Carla Vizzotti, those people who have to travel abroad and received two doses of Sputnik as an initial scheme plus a booster with a dose of another vaccine platform, will be able to access the fourth dose. This decision enables individuals in this group to travel to countries that do not accept the Russian technology because it has not been authorized by the WHO. As part of the procedure, those who choose to do so must present a ticket, comply with the minimum intervals between doses and justify the need to travel: work, personal, humanitarian, religious, study or recreational reasons. They must -additionally- sign an informed consent form in order to make it clear that this is a personal decision and not a health recommendation....

....With the increase of Influenza A (subtype H3N2) Virus, the National Ministry of Health had announced on Wednesday 15 that the distribution of 1,120,000 doses of anti-influenza vaccines among the 24 jurisdictions will begin in the first days of next week, and therefore established recommendations for the imminent vaccination campaign.

When asked about the impact of the early advance of the virus, Vizzotti clarified: "The 2009 Influenza A pandemic was the same as now, a new virus emerged that spread from person to person, now it has become seasonal. Now influenza A and B are circulating, what we have to talk about is influenza. Because now it is here ahead of schedule by several months, when it should start in April or May. Tomorrow we begin to receive the anti-influenza doses, and we start with the distribution", she added, reaffirming that the first vaccines will arrive between March 18 and 21.

....“These results provide reassuring data that may encourage patients with a history of myocarditis to get vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2,” said study author Dr. Iyad Abou Saleh of Hospices Civils de Lyon, France. “It should be noted that the majority of patients in our study received the BNT162b2 mRNAn (Pfizer-BioNTech) vaccine and therefore the findings may not apply to other vaccines.”....

....In the last weeks, coronavirus cases started to increase again in Switzerland, Finland, the Netherlands and the UK, which generates an alert among specialists in Argentina. They warn of a possible increase also at local level that could overlap with seasonal outbreaks of other respiratory diseases such as influenza. "What is happening is that there is an increase in cases in several European countries in line with the increase in the prevalence of the Omicron BA.2 subvariant," said Rodrigo Quiroga, a bioinformatician at the National University of Córdoba (UNC) and researcher at the Conicet...."There are several factors that may influence the increase in cases; on the one hand, there is evidence that BA.2 is more contagious, and on the other hand, care has been relaxed. Also, several months have passed since the application of the boosters and we know that after 10 weeks the protection against symptomatic infection is less than when it was just applied", indicated Quiroga....

The Argentine vaccine against Covid, "Arvac Cecilia Grierson", passes to Phase 1 and will begin to be tested in humans. The dose under investigation is intended to be applied as a booster of existing vaccines.....80 healthy volunteers will participate in this phase, who have already received a complete vaccination schedule and who also meet the necessary requirements to be eligible....This new immunizer was developed thanks to the joint work of the Universidad Nacional de San Martín and the team of CONICET researchers with the Pablo Cassará Foundation and the Cassará Laboratory, which makes it the first drug against the coronavirus developed entirely in Argentina....

....Carla Vizzotti, National Health Minister, announced on Wednesday that a second booster of the vaccine against the coronavirus will be applied, which in practice will represent for most of those who receive it a "fourth dose" since the immunization campaign began....The first to receive the second booster will be health personnel, people 50 years of age or older, people over 12 years of age with risk conditions, security forces and teachers. "If you are part of these groups, you have already received your initial scheme and 4 months have passed since your first booster, you will be able to receive the second one as soon as it is defined by your jurisdiction", said the Minister....In the case of close contacts of a positive case, quarantine is not indicated. Instead, it is recommended that they avoid contact with vulnerable persons and that they maximize preventive measures...In the last few days, Fernán Quirós, Minister of Health of the City of BA, warned about a possible new wave of the disease. He explained that there may be an increase in the number of Covid cases in the coming weeks, due to the change of season and the arrival of colder temperatures.
