Dear colleagues,

The questions that could not be answered during the webinar session have been compiled into the following Q&A document:

These are the questions that have been answered:

  • How is the WHO planning to convince countries to keep using AstraZeneca given the negative side effects that have occurred?
  • A man and his wife took the AstraZeneca vaccine on 13th of February and on 17th the man collapsed and died without showing any sign of ill health. Can we say the vaccine is the cause of death?
  • I know it is better to have all types of emergency medications available for AEFI kit. However, keeping in mind the poor resource settings, which group of medications you would recommend?
  • What is the procedure to verify that the vaccine is in good condition?
  • What will be the available test of choice to measure protective antibodies after vaccination?
  • COVID-19 vaccines show different results in different environmental condition, do you think environmental condition influence the effectiveness of vaccines?
