The World Health Organization (WHO) says it will continue to work with countries around the globe to further boost the availability of life-saving vaccines.
The WHO Director-General, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus says vaccines should not only be available during times like the Covid-19 pandemic but also to fight other deadly diseases on a daily basis.
He says the development and distribution of vaccines have already lead to the eradication of smallpox and the near-eradication of diseases such as meningitis, polio, and tetanus.
