In the first 100 days of this year, 194 out of 220 countries and economies have started vaccinating against COVID-19, while 26 have yet to do so, WHO Director-General Tedros Tedros said. More than 700 million doses of vaccine have been administered globally, but more than 87 per cent have been concentrated in high – or upper-middle-income countries.
The Global Access Facility for COVID-19, led by the World Health Organization (WHO), began making the vaccine against COVID-19 available to countries worldwide on 24 February this year. To date, the Global Access Facility for COVID-19 has delivered more than 38 million doses of vaccine across six continents. Of the more than 100 economies that have received the vaccine, 61 are low-income economies.
Tedros said the Coronavirus Access Mechanism, which aims to equitably distribute vaccines around the world, is working. According to the latest projections, the new coronavirus acquisition mechanism is on track to deliver at least 2 billion doses of vaccine by 2021. To achieve this goal, the mechanism will continue to further expand its product portfolio and enter into new agreements with vaccine manufacturers.
