COVAX on track to deliver 300 million COVID-19 vaccine doses: WHO

A senior WHO official announced on Monday that the COVAX facility has brought 30 million shots of COVID-19 vaccine to 50 countries and is on track to deliver 300 million doses by the end of the 2nd quarter but some suppliers are having “teething problems.”

“The problem is we simply cannot get enough vaccine, manufacturers now are not able to keep up with our orders,” Bruce Aylward, a senior WHO adviser and coordinator of the ACT (Access to COVID-19 Tools) Accelerator, told a news conference.
