The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Wednesday allowed a booster dose of the Pfizer Inc and BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for those aged 65 and older and some high-risk Americans, paving the way for a quick rollout of the shots.

Inquirer Breaking News - 2 hours 16 min ago
SYDNEY --- Police in Australia's second-largest city of Melbourne prepared for the fourth day of anti-lockdown protests on Thursday after more than 200 arrests a day earlier, while COVID-19 cases across the state of Victoria hit a daily record.

Brazil regulator says adolescent death unrelated to Pfizer shot

Inquirer Breaking News - 2 hours 34 min ago
BRASILIA --- The death of a 16-year-old who had a first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine against COVID-19 was due to a prior blood clot condition not related to the vaccine, Brazil's health regulator Anvisa said Wednesday. Concluding an investigation into the death earlier this month, Anvisa said it was caused by an auto-immune disease suffered by the adolescent. The Pfizer vaccine is the only one approved for minors in Brazil. "It was a characteristic clinical picture of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, an autoimmune disease," the regulator said in a statement. Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is a rare disorder that causes blood clots to form in small blood vesse...

Inquirer Breaking News - 2 hours 58 min ago
WASHINGTON --- A U.S.-trained Afghan pilot was talking to Reuters on a smuggled cellphone from Tajikistan, where he is being held when something strange happened - his voice started looping, repeating everything he had just said, word for word. His fiancee, an American nurse in Florida, was on the line too and started to panic. She shouted his name, but his words kept cycling back.
