European Union Response to PNG Opposition Leader Namah's claims on COVID-199 Vaccination

The European Union has responded to the Papua New Guinea Opposition Leader, Belden Namah's statement calling on the Prime Minister, James Marape to stop the roll-out of the vaccine AstraZeneca.

A statement released this morning by the EU says vaccination is one of its strongest means to put an end to the Covid-19 pandemic and everyone must all continue efforts to ensure that the roll-out is proceeding as quickly as possible.

The statement says the EU authorities have granted conditional marketing authorization for the Covid 19 vaccine developed by BioNTech and Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZenecaafter positive scientific recommendation bases on a thorough assessment of the safety, effectiveness, and quality of the vaccine by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

It says that is why they have ensured that all vaccines, before being administered, go through the rigorous and independent safety scrutiny of the European Medicines Agency.  

The EU says as the European Medicines Agency had clearly stated on 18 March, the benefits of the vaccine in combating COVID-19 continue to outweigh the risks of side effects. 

It says it is an effective and safe vaccine that greatly contributes to the efforts to address the impact of COVID-19 and the very serious health risks of an infection. 

The Opposition Leader had called on the government to immediately suspend the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccination in the country.

Beldon Namah says all questions and uncertainties surrounding the AstraZeneca vaccine and its potentially serious side effects must be fully resolved.
