This comes after the head of the vaccine research group at Oxford University, which developed the AstraZeneca vaccines, warned yesterday that many more people around the world would die from Covid-19 if Western political leaders "relinquish responsibility to the rest of humanity" by giving preference for revaccination for their population.
“Countries with high coverage are seeing a separation of Covid-19 cases and deaths, while countries without vaccine access are seeing a sharp rise in deaths. No one is safe until everyone is safe, and therefore we need a moratorium on boosters, "Adhanom said.
Professor Andrew Pollard and Seth Berkeley, executive director of Gavi, the vaccine alliance, also said there was no scientific and public argument for a large-scale booster vaccination.
As reported, the US has authorized the use of a booster dose of Pfizer and Moderna coronavirus vaccines.
