– 7 a.m .: Covax program needs rules to avoid WHO vaccine adviser reserves

The Covax program for global access to a vaccine against Covid-19 needs to introduce additional rules to prevent developed countries or those producing the vaccines from building up reserves, said Friday, December 10 an adviser from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Covax, led by the WHO and the Vaccine Alliance (Gavi), suffered as advanced economies used their purchasing capacities to guide vaccine deliveries, while producing countries preferred to prioritize national needs, explained Bruce Aylward, adviser to the WHO Director-General.

“You cannot vaccinate part of the world and keep the less developed countries waiting,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the G20 financial side meetings in Bali.

Bruce Aylward called on vaccine makers to be more transparent.

“Manufacturers must indicate how many doses of the vaccine are sent, to whom, where and when. If we don’t have this information, we cannot predict correctly,” he added.

“While it has been said that (Omicron) doesn’t cause a lot of deaths, we don’t know,” said Bruce Aylward. “It’s a new variant and there isn’t a lot of sequencing giving us any clues as to its severity.”
