The first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine was not provided to the citizens of over 130 world countries, including the most vulnerable as UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay stated.

“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.
