China Joins World in Covid Vaccine Push - U.S. Stays Outside

Of 195 countries, more than 170 have joined a global collaboration to develop, produce and provide Covid-19 vaccines on an equitable basis around the world. The aim of #COVAX is to distribute two billion doses during 2021, beginning with front-line health workers and people who are most vulnerable - with the goal of preventing deaths and opening economies. China joined the effort on 9 October 2020. The United States continued to refuse.


Nearly 20 Covid-19 vaccine candidates are engaged in a coordinated global effort to provide access to safe prevention.
