Here are some important events:
- The Food and Drug Administration warned Monday that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is associated with rarely but seriously a side effect in which the immune system attacks the nerves.
- Head of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhan Ghebreyesus criticized richer countries to think about intensified shootings at a time when most of the developing world remains unvaccinated.
- Japan will send a third shipment of doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine Taiwan this week because it wants to strengthen the Asian island against China. The latest dispatch means that Tokyo donated more than 3.3 million recordings to Taipei.
- China said it has administered more than 1.39 billion doses of vaccine, even though countries that use injections developed in China are increasingly displaying Western-made messenger RNA anti-vaccines. The country recorded about 50 new infections on Monday.
- Trade secretary Gina Raimondo said she did “Strong push” to facilitate the entry of international travelers into the United States. But she added that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is nervous and determining vaccination status is a challenge.
