Turkish Health Ministry Denies Claims Infants Were Mistakenly Vaccinated Against COVID-19
ANKARA (Sputnik) - The Turkish Health Ministry denied the claims made earlier in the day by a medical professor at the Ege University, Zafer Kurugol, that children below one year of age had been mistakenly vaccinated against COVID-19 in Turkey.
In an interview with the Turkish NTV broadcaster, Kurugol claimed that Turkish doctors had mistakenly administered COVID-19 vaccine shots to some infants instead of the hepatitis B vaccine.

"Kurugol's statements are unacceptable and untrue. Our vaccine safety system cannot let such incidents happen. An investigation was launched against the source of these allegations," the statement said.

There is a powerful and safe vaccination monitoring system in place, the ministry noted.

"The entire process, from the shipping of the vaccine from the ministry's warehouse to its administering, is monitored digitally using a bar code. If there are errors at any level, the system automatically issues warnings and takes the necessary precautions," the ministry explained.

Oxford Vaccine Creator Says COVID-19 to Eventually Wane Into Common Cold
MOSCOW (Sputnik) - COVID-19 will weaken over time and eventually become just like the other coronaviruses that cause the common cold, Sarah Gilbert, Professorship of Vaccinology behind the University of Oxford's vaccine, said.

"We already live with four different human coronaviruses that we don’t really ever think about very much and eventually Sars-CoV-2 will become one of those. It’s just a question of how long it’s going to take to get there and what measures we’re going to have to take to manage it in the meantime," Gilbert told a Royal Society of Medicine webinar, as quoted by The Times.


Gilbert said that the fears of a more deadly coronavirus variant are unsubstantiated, explaining that "viruses become less virulent as they circulate more easily and there is no reason to think we will have a more virulent version of Sars-CoV-2."

The professor said that it is important to start working on the prevention of further pandemics right now, noting that "by spending a small amount of investment now potentially means that we don't have to have the massive costs of a pandemic at a later stage."

The Oxford vaccine, developed in cooperation with with US-Swedish pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, was approved by the World Health Organisation for emergency use in February.

UK Working to Eliminate COVID-19 PCR Test by School Half-Term Break in October – Minister
LONDON (Sputnik) – The UK government is working to replace the costly COVID-19 PCR tests for fully vaccinated international travelers by lateral flow tests by the school half-term holiday in October, a government junior minister said on 23 September.

"We've got to get the systems in place because we want to move to lateral flow tests to make it easier and cheaper for people to be able to enjoy those holidays at half-term," Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Paul Scully, told Sky News.


Last week, the government announced that from October 4, the current traffic light system that divides countries in red, amber and green categories based on their level of coronavirus prevalence will be scrapped, so any place which is not red-listed will be safe for travel.

People who have received the two recommended doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will no longer need a predeparture test before returning from non-red list destinations.

However, those coming from red list destinations will still have to quarantine in a government-supervised hotel at their own expenses and pay for the tests.

According to media reports, the government's decision to ease travel restrictions into the UK has sparked a half-term booking frenzy with demand for holidays soaring by 200% and airlines offering deals "far lower" than before the pandemic.

The one-week Autumn half-term holiday is scheduled for October 25-29.
