COVID-19 vaccine scheme for world’s poorest pushes for delivery slowdown – CTV

June 22, 2022

LONDON – Leaders of the global scheme aiming to get COVID-19 vaccines to the world’s poorest are pushing manufacturers, including Pfizer and Moderna, to cut or slow deliveries of about half a billion shots so doses are not wasted.
COVAX, the World Health Organization-led scheme, wants between 400 and 600 million fewer vaccines doses than initially contracted from six pharmaceutical companies, according to internal documents seen by Reuters.

While at first the initiative struggled for shots as wealthy nations snapped up limited supply, donations from those same countries later in 2021, as well as improved output from manufacturers – alongside delivery challenges and vaccine hesitancy in a number of countries – has led to a glut of vaccine in 2022.

“COVAX has called for manufacturers to acknowledge the global oversupply situation, and support collective efforts to meet the timing of countries’ needs and avoid unnecessary wastage,” said a spokesperson for Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, which runs the initiative alongside WHO.
