By Zoila Palma: The World Health Organization/ Pan American Health Organization (WHO/PAHO)’s global vaccine effort, COVAX has since delivered 38 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines across 6 continents.

The milestone comes 42 days after its first delivery in Ghana.

The vaccines supplied by manufacturers, AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNTech, and the Serum Institute of India (SII) have been delivered to over 100 economies around the world.

In addition, COVAX expects to deliver doses to all participating countries that have requested vaccines in the first half of the year.

“In under four months since the very first mass vaccination outside a clinical setting anywhere in the world, it is tremendously gratifying that the roll-out of COVAX doses has already reached one hundred countries,” said Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

“COVAX has given the world the best way to ensure the fastest, most equitable rollout of safe and effective vaccines to all at-risk people in every country on the planet,” said Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General.

COVAX expects to deliver at least 2 billion doses of vaccines in 2021.

COVAX is also working to secure additional sourcing of vaccines in the form of dose-sharing from higher-income countries.
