中英对照:阿斯利康疫苗风波凸显西方政府重视疫苗接种安全
AstraZeneca painful saga reveals Western authorities' heightened vigilance over vaccine safety

 
 
新冠疫苗在抵抗疫情过程中所起的至关重要的作用使其成为政治舞台上的道具,也沦为政治集权国家攻击对手的武器。 在一些接种了辉瑞疫苗的挪威老人去世后,一些微信媒体张贴借此之机大肆攻击西方国家,指责急于对付疫情的西方政府和媒体对挪威老人的去世视而不见,并试图掩盖辉瑞疫苗所产生的致死之副作用。然而牛津阿斯利康疫苗在上市后所面临的坎坷经历证实,对西方国家的这种指控毫无根据,纯属无稽之谈。
 
Covid 19 vaccines' critical role in fighting the pandemic has turned it into a prop in the theater of politics and a weapon to assault rivals in politically centralized states. In the wake of a group of Pfizer recipient's deaths in Norway early this year, some social media posts have tapped into the opportunity to attack the Western governments and media. It accused the West, desperately to suppress the pandemic, have turned a blind eye to Norwegians' tragic deaths, trying to sweep the vaccine's death-causing side effects under the rug. However, the AstraZeneca vaccine's roller-coaster ride has proven the accusations couldn't be more wrong and baseless.

挪威卫生当局对老人死亡的调查发现,23名患有各种原发病症的老人死亡并非辉瑞疫苗所致。挪威老年机构每周平均有400老人名死亡,而接种辉瑞疫苗后而死亡之老者与这一平均死亡人数相吻。挪威卫生当局认为这些老年人的死亡与疫苗无关,对辉瑞疫苗安全度毫无影响,因此也未曾推出任何限制疫苗使用的规管措施。
 
The Norwegian health authority's investigation has found the Pfizer vaccines not to blame for the deaths of 23 frail seniors with severe underlying illnesses. Their deaths were in line with the average casualties in Norway's senior care facilities, where 400 people die each week of serious diseases.  Norwegian health authorities believed the vaccine-unrelated deaths did not cause any concern over Pfizer vaccine safety, nor did it prompt any regulatory restrictions over the vaccine use.
 
但是阿斯利康疫苗所经历的则完全是另一番风雨,促使西方国家就该疫苗的安全性采取一系列防御性监管措施。由于接种该疫苗人群中发生了数起恶性不良反应,许多欧洲国家做出了暂停疫苗使用的决定。在一名疫苗接种者因患血栓死亡,另一名病重之后,奥地利为第一个下了暂停使用令的欧洲国家。之后,在1700万疫苗接种中出现了37起血栓事件。为此,尽管阿斯利康制造商反复强调疫苗的安全性,10几个欧洲国家都纷纷下令,暂停阿斯利康疫苗的接种。
 
But AstraZeneca vaccine's safety rating has been a whole new ball game, which prompted precautionary measures from the governments across the West.  Multiple adverse events after the AstraZeneca shots had led to its rollout suspensions in several European countries.  Austria was the first country to halt the vaccine after blood clotting occurred on two middle-aged recipients – causing one dead and another severely ill.  Over a dozen European countries followed suit after 37 reports of blood clot events out of over 17 million people, despite the vaccine makers' claim that the vaccine did not increase blood clotting disorder risks.

欧盟医药当局的调查并未发现疫苗导致血栓出现的直接证据,因而暂时为阿斯利康疫苗正了名,许多欧盟国家也恢复了对疫苗的使用。但新的研究却又给该疫苗的安全性蒙上了一层阴影。医学家们找到了疫苗可能会引发一种被称为“VIPIT”血栓症病理机制。同时,欧洲的血栓事件不断上升,从估算的每100万中的1例上升为每10万人中1例,而这一现实挑战着加国医疗官员们的安全承受上限。
 
The investigation by EU drug authorities that have found no direct link between the vaccine and the disorder temporarily cleared the vaccine's name, which allowed European governments to resume the vaccine's approval. However, new research has cast a shadow on the jab. Scientists identified a plausible mechanism that could link the AstraZeneca shot to the blood clotting disorder dubbed VIPIT.  Meanwhile, more blood clot cases have emerged in Europe, raising the estimated rate of adverse events from one per million vaccinations to 1 per 100,000 – which exceeded Canadian health officials' safety tolerance.
 
尽管有大量证据显示阿斯利康疫苗能有效防止新冠疫情,且加国也未曾出现一起血栓事件,但新的医学观点还是让加国卫生官员做出极为小心和谨慎的决定。 加拿大疫苗接种咨询委员会(NACI)在宣布了对疫苗使用进行限制的决定之后,加国各省政府纷纷改变了对该疫苗以往的温和态度,下令禁止55岁以下的人群接种此疫苗。同时,美国医药管理局也对制药商提供的有效数字提出质疑,进一步阻止其在美国的批准使用。
 
Despite the evidence showing the vaccine's efficacy in preventing Covid 19 and despite no blood clotting incident reported in Canada, the new science development has led the Canadian health officials' decision to err on the side of caution. NACI's announcement over the vaccine's restrictions has prompted the government's changed the course of action to suspend AstraZeneca's use for people under 55. Meanwhile, the US drug agency also challenged the drug maker's efficacy results, rendering the vaccine's setback in its approval in the US.  
 
阿斯利康疫苗的惨痛经历凸显出一个稳健, 严格和极其透明的西方医学体系,对疫苗安全性极度关切的西方政府,以及誓将疫苗不良副作用昭示于众的西方媒体。这与某些集权专制国家大搞疫苗地缘政治,同时忽视疫苗接种安全,使用未经批准疫苗而为成千上万人接种的做法大相径庭,并形成鲜明对比。
 
AstraZeneca's painful saga has revealed a robust, stringent, and transparent Western medical regime, the governments' heightened vigilance over vaccines' safety, and the media's relentless efforts to put vaccine's side effects under public scrutiny. It stands in sharp contrast to authoritarian states' vaccine strategy that prioritizes the geopolitical gains over citizens' safety, trying to inoculate hundreds of thousands of people with unproven vaccines.
