Through COVAX we can fairly distribute vaccines to all countries

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Through COVAX we can fairly distribute vaccines to all countries” – below is their description.

With vaccines now rolling out, protection against the COVID-19 virus is spreading. But protecting one country has its limits when others are not protected. Through COVAX we can fairly distribute vaccines to all countries to protect ourselves locally. Vaccine doses must be shared globally and immediately.

COVAX is the vaccines pillar of the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, aiming to accelerate the development, production, and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines.
