The COVAX’s first interim distribution forecast, with countries, which will receive the COVID-19 vaccines, was published. Ghana is among the countries on the list and has been allocated 2.4M vaccines in the indicative distribution. The European Union (EU) and its Member States, Team Europe, finance this initiative. It is an important step in enabling equitable global access to COVID-19 vaccines.

The COVAX initiative brings together the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance and the World Health Organization (WHO), alongside delivery partner UNICEF. COVAX seeks to ensure equitable access to vaccines. It will only work with WHO-authorised vaccines.

The interim distribution forecast provides information on early projected availability of COVID-19 vaccines. The countries listed in the forecast include 16 countries in West Africa including Ghana.

Early support from the European Union, its Member States and the EIB acted as a catalyst for COVAX to become a reality. The European Union is the biggest donor to COVAX.
