“To be effective, vaccine campaigns must also be designed around the unique needs of the population,” said Etienne, citing Belize’s move to vaccinate in public spaces, such as bus terminals and markets, as an example.
Etienne was speaking on Wednesday on the rate of vaccination throughout the Americas saying that while the majority of countries will reach the PAHO target of 40% of fully vaccinated populations by the end of the year, some countries are far behind.
She also mentioned Bolivia as a country that is making positive moves with small cash transfers given as incentives to pregnant women to get vaccinated.
“The actions we take over the next three months will help us save lives, make the most of available supplies and determine our outlook for 2022,” the PAHO Director said.
