@NkalaSizo Please do some reading on vaccine market inequities. Producers are reluctant to sell to lower-income countries. Even COVAX, with a large budget, finds it difficult to obtain supplies, because vaccine producers prefer to sell to wealthy countries. This is well documented.
Vaccine shortages are affecting countries who rely on the World Health Organization’s COVAX program to distribute them.

The longer health workers, teachers and social workers remain unprotected against COVID-19, the greater the risk to their health, and the health, safety and opportunities for children. Wealthy countries must share available vaccines through COVAX now.
Ivory Coast received a shipment of COVID-19 doses from the COVAX vaccine-sharing facility on Friday, becoming the second country to benefit from a programme meant to ensure fairer distribution amid a global scramble.
