Drugmakers Sanofi and GSK said Wednesday they would set aside 200 million doses of a future coronavirus vaccine for a global initiative to ensure equitable distribution, including in poor countries. The AFP reports that there has been great concern about fair access to Covid-19 vaccines as rich countries have bought up billions of doses long before a jab has even been approved. The French and British drug giants said they had signed a statement of intent with the Gavi Alliance, which administers the Covax plan for fair vaccine distribution. On Sunday, the World Health Organization warned against ‘vaccine nationalism’ and underlined that global protection can only be attained with widespread vaccination.
