    “Our aim is to have two billion doses of vaccine available by the end of 2021,” the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said Monday. An $18 billion initiative to deploy future Covid-19 vaccines around the world is moving into the next phase with 156 countries and regions taking part in the program, but China joining the U.S. on the sidelines, at least for now. “The fastest route to ending the pandemic and accelerating the global economic recovery is to ensure some people are vaccinated in all countries, not all people in some countries.” Gavi and its partners aim to give countries that have already snapped up future supplies an opportunity to hedge the risk of backing unsuccessful vaccine candidates. The program meanwhile offers a lifeline for poorer nations that can’t otherwise afford vaccines, as well as a number of higher-income ones that don’t have supply deals with manufacturers, according to its organizers.
