COVID Vaccination Alliance of UNICEF Australia
COVAX is one of three pillars of the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, which was launched in April in response to this pandemic. Bringing together governments, global health organisations, manufacturers, scientists, private sector, civil society and philanthropy, with the aim of providing innovative and equitable access to COVID-19 diagnostics, treatments and vaccines. The COVAX pillar is focussed on the latter. It is a global solution to this pandemic because it is the only effort to ensure that people in all corners of the world will get access to COVID-19 vaccines once they are available, regardless of their wealth.
Powering the largest and fastest vaccination operation for humanity
The pandemic isn’t over until it’s over for everyone. We must come together to ensure safe and equal access to COVID-19 vaccines for all. The largest vaccine procurement and supply operation ever is underway – and UNICEF is leading it on behalf of the Global COVAX Facility.
- 2 billion vaccine doses delivered to those who need them most by the end of 2021.
- 1 billion syringes procured and delivered by the end of 2021.
- 190 countries participating.
The COVID Vaccination Alliance of UNICEF Australia will support global vaccine rollout and emergency pandemic outbreaks by mobilising funding and advocacy resources in Australia.
The Alliance encourages cross-sector collaboration and aligns with the priority of governments and communities in Australia and around the world.
This drive to vaccinate the world is strong. It is not understood in the practical sense why such drive is being undertaken with such a low mortality rate risk of Covid-19.
It is also not understood why there is a great deal of information around the vaccine benefits, but very little to nothing on the risks of the so-called vaccine.
