COVAX Deliveries: vaccine donations as a percentage of the population in recipient countries.

Map of the Month 09/2021

September's map of the month illustrates how many COVAX vaccine donations were delivered to recipient countries by the end of September. The COVAX Facility, co-led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), Gavi, and the World Health Organization (WHO), advocates for rapid, fair, and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines around the world. Since the first international shipment to Ghana on February 24, 2021, the COVAX Facility has already delivered over 313 mln. doses of COVID-19 vaccine to 145 territories. Due to a lack of donations, the COVAX Facility will not reach its original 2021 goal of 2 billion doses until early next year. However, the revised target of 1.2 bln. doses, which will be reached by the end of this year, is sufficient to protect 20% of the population, or 40% of all adults, in all but one recipient country.
