The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that approximately 172 countries are now part of the “largest and most comprehensive COVID-19 vaccine portfolio” called COVAX which aims to deliver at least two billion doses of vaccines to participating countries by the end of 2021.
“Nine vaccines currently form part of this diverse range,” WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus said at a virtual news conference, referring to the COVAX Global Vaccines Facility.

The health body has arranged all the nations, according to the WHO president, and they will all receive the vaccine when it’s ready.

Tedros noted that in the longer term nine other vaccines are under review.

According to him, COVAX is a system for joint procurement and pooling risk through multiple vaccines so that whatever vaccine is known to be safe and reliable, they can be accessed by all countries within the facility.

He said that global competition for a viable and working COVID-19 vaccine doses could lead to exponential spiking of costs, but that won’t happen with COVAX.

The COVAX distribution process, according to Tedros, seeks to ensure that low, middle , and high-income countries all receive the vaccine in a timely manner as long as there is a secure and reliable vaccine supply.He also added that the vaccine should be given to those at greatest risk, including health personnel, people over the age of 65 and others at higher risk of COVID-19 dying as a result of other diseases that they already have.“A number of vaccines are now in the final stage of clinical trials, and we all hope we will have multiple successful candidates that are both safe and effective,”
