“When vaccination campaigns were announced across the globe, the world breathed a sigh of relief. Without solidarity, we are far from achieving this goal, and over 130 countries have yet to receive a single dose and the most vulnerable, so far, are not protected,” she stated.
Audrey Azoulay noted that while some developed countries provided a sufficient number of vaccines for the protection of their population; some countries are left behind. According to her, as things stand now, the citizens of many developing countries will be left without access to vaccines until 2022.
“We will not end the pandemic anywhere until we end it everywhere. Ultimately vaccine equity is not just the right thing to do, it is the best way to control the pandemic, restore confidence and reboot the global economy,” Director-General of the World Health Organization Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
Meanwhile, the vaccination from Covid-19 has started in Ukraine on February 24. The first person to receive the vaccine was Yevhen Horenko, a resuscitator at the Cherkasy Regional Hospital. The vaccination takes place in three regions of Ukraine.
