WHO Approved COVID 19 Vaccine List
Just and impartial access to safe and effective vaccines is critical to ending the COVID-19 pandemic. It is therefore encouraging to see several vaccines proving and going into development. World Health Organization (WHO) is working tirelessly with partners to develop, manufacture and deploy safe and effective vaccines. Safe and effective vaccines are a game-changing tool to control pandemic. However for a better future, people must continue wearing masks, clean hands, ensure good ventilation indoors, maintain social distancing and avoid crowds.
If we become vaccinated, it does not mean that we can throw caution to the wind and put ourselves and others at risk, particularly because research is still ongoing into how much vaccines protect not only against disease but also against infection and transmission. Check WHO’s landscape of COVID-19 vaccine candidates for the latest information on vaccines in clinical and pre- clinical development, generally updated twice a week. WHO’s COVID-19 dashboard, updated daily, also features the number of vaccine doses administered globally.
But it’s not vaccines that will stop the pandemic, it’s vaccination. We must ensure fair and equitable access to vaccines, and ensure every country receives them and can roll them out to protect their people, starting with the most vulnerable.
