Vaccine Geopolitics
8 | february | 2021

Even before most covid-19 vaccines were approved, the world's richest countries had already ordered millions of vaccines, despite calls from the WHO that these agreements could hinder access to vaccination for poorer countries warning against "vaccine nationalism" and that the pandemic is global and requires global vaccination. COVAX, an initiative to provide access to equitable treatment and vaccination, has distributed vaccines around the world, but access to vaccines remains unequal between different parts of the world.
