Vaccine Nationalism – Issues – Alternatives

Vaccine nationalism:

Vaccine nationalism is not new:



A COVID-19 vaccine is likely going to be the only way the world will return to any semblance of normal life. Every country needs access to a safe and effective vaccine, and the COVAX initiative currently offers the best way to achieve that.
