Resilient Recovery Series: Preparing Countries for a Safe and Effective COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout
How ready are countries to distribute COVID-19 vaccines? The global COVID-19 vaccination campaign will be the largest in history. The delivery of COVID-19 vaccines presents challenges unprecedented in scale, speed, and specific cities, especially in low- and middle-income countries.
Starting in November 2020, anticipating the availability of safe and effective vaccines for COVID-19, the World Bank together with WHO, UNICEF, the Global Fund, and Gavi rolled out readiness assessments in more than 100 low- and middle-income countries. As countries ramp up efforts to vaccinate their populations against the deadly COVID-19 disease, the world’s poorest countries show varying degrees of readiness for this massive undertaking.
How can we prepare countries for a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine rollout? We will discuss this and more with Mamta Murthi, Vice President for Human Development at the World Bank.
Join us for the live conversation on March 18th.
