WHO cautions against to ‘vaccine nationalism’

Urges all members to join COVAX vaccine effort

Countries putting their own interests ahead of others in trying to ensure supplies of a possible coronavirus vaccine are making the pandemic worse, said World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

“(Acting) strategically and globally is actually in each country’s national interest – no one is safe until everyone is safe,” he told a virtual briefing calling for an end to “vaccine nationalism”.

He said he had sent a letter to all WHO members asking them to join the multilateral COVAX vaccine effort.
