Reportedly, the GAVI Vaccine Alliance to buy 200 million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine, as a major shortfall in the COVAX vaccine-sharing program is caused as India suspends vaccine exports. The country is fighting vaccine shortage and fails to fulfill its home demand as it fights the second wave of the pandemic.
“As a one dose vaccine, the J&J vaccine has particular relevance for places with difficult infrastructure, making it a very important addition to the portfolio,” stated GAVI CEO Seth Berkley said in a statement announcing the signing of an advanced purchase agreement with the U.S. drugmaker.
The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) stated that the goal was to have the new J&J doses available in 2021, for distribution to both poorer countries, as well as self-financing participants of COVAX. COVAX, co-led by Gavi, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), and WHO aims to secure 2 billion vaccine doses for lower-income countries by the end of 2021.
