WHO wants to start vaccinating healthcare workers worldwide against COVID-19

of health care workers and people at high risk should begin in the next 100 days in all countries of the world.





The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adanom Gebreyesus, said this at a briefing in Geneva.

“I call for a collective commitment that within the next 100 days, vaccination of health workers and high-risk individuals will begin in all countries,” he said.

Gebreyesus said governments, manufacturers, civil society, religious and community leaders must unite for “the greatest mass mobilization in history for a just vaccination.”

“Nearly 2 million people have died of the COVID-19 virus in one year, and while we hope to deploy safe and effective vaccines, we want to see this accelerated and vaccines distributed evenly in the coming weeks,” he added.

Recall, the World Health Organization has called on wealthy nations to share the vaccine with COVAX, which aims to provide all countries with the vaccine equitably.

We also reported that after the European Medicines Agency recommended a vaccine created by the U.S. company Moderna for use against the coronavirus, the drug was officially approved by the European Commission.
