After Britain, Bahrain has become the second country in the world to have formally approved the emergency use of the Kovid-19 vaccine developed by pharmaceutical manufacturer Pfizer and its German partner Biontech. Bahrain’s official communications agency announced this on Friday night.
“After thorough analysis and review of the available data, Bahrain’s Health Regulatory Agency has approved its emergency use,” the agency said.

However, Bahrain did not say how many doses of the vaccine it had purchased and when the vaccination would begin. The Bahrain authorities did not immediately respond to an Associated Press question. Pfizer later said the sale agreement, including vaccine supply and number of doses to Bahrain, was secret and declined to comment.
Significantly, Bahrain has already approved the emergency use of China-made vaccines’ Sinopharm and has so far administered these vaccines to 6,000 people.
Biden ready to take corona vaccine in public
US citizens will not be forced to take the Corona vaccine. Newly elected President Joe Biden said Friday that Americans will not be forced to take the coronavirus vaccine and that he is ready to be publicly vaccinated for those concerned about its effects and safety. Talking about the vaccine, Joe Biden said, “I don’t think it should be mandatory.” I don’t want it to be mandatory, just as I don’t think a mask is mandatory.
Joe Biden will be sworn in as President in January. He said that he would ensure that the corona vaccine is available free to all. He continued, “As President of the United Nations, I will do everything to encourage people to do the right thing.” That is why I said in my speech that I am going to appeal to people to wear masks for 100 days, it is not a political issue on which provision should be made as punishment.
