— Eric Feigl-Ding (@DrEricDing) March 30, 2021 So far, WHO has authorized the emergency use of vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech, Janssen, and AstraZeneca.
This multilateral institution also uses its emergency vaccine list to procure drugs through the COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access Facility (COVAX), which is tasked with distributing doses in developing countries.
For now, the bulk of some 30 million vaccines distributed through COVAX were manufactured by AstraZeneca in partnership with South Korea’s SK BIO and the Serological Institute of India.
