“Over 40 countries have now begun vaccinating against COVID-19. However, all of that vaccination, or virtually all, was in high income or middle-income countries so far,” he mentioned. “We have got to see vaccines going to lower and lower-middle-income countries too.”

He mentioned the COVAX programme may start vaccinating individuals in February, including that there was an ongoing effort to hurry up the method in order that vaccinations in poor international locations may happen this month.

The United Nations have doubled its orders to the vaccine-producing firms underneath the COVAX programme.

In the meantime, Palestine has contacted 4 vaccine-producing firms, together with a Russian one, for getting the vaccine.
