Widespread COVID-19 vaccination by 2021? Not without "global coordination" & solidarity

As vaccine developers worldwide report that early trials of new coronavirus vaccines are showing promising results, director of Harvard University’s Global Health Institute Dr. Ashish Jha says the creation of a vaccine is merely the first step in a series of actions to ensure widespread coronavirus immunity. Even after a vaccine — or multiple — has been tested and approved, he anticipates “a huge set of production issues, a huge set of distribution issues [and] equity issues.” Ensuring that people around the world, regardless of geography or wealth, are able to access the vaccination is not only crucial, but going to require “global coordination [and] global solidarity,” says Jha.
