WHO has called on the United Kingdom to suspend the vaccination program on this scale, as the country's most vulnerable population has already been vaccinated and the UK could now help ensure that vaccinations are distributed equitably around the world. WHO insists that all countries should aim to “distribute fairly” two billion doses of vaccines globally by the end of 2021. Citing a number of studies, doctors argue that total vaccination of their country and the belief that "we are fine" will not work for its economy by itself.

Yes, Great Britain, Canada, Chile stocked up on vaccines ahead of the rest. Thus, in Albion, a stock of more than five doses of vaccines has been created for one, which is in sharp contrast to poor developing countries. The British Guardian, which released these data, notes that the three above-named states have broken the world record for vaccine stocks per capita.

Meanwhile, countries in Africa and Latin America - with the exception of Brazil - have ordered the vaccine in such small quantities that it will only be enough for one vaccination and only for less than half of the population. It is well known that some vaccines need to be inoculated twice to be effective.

As the Guardian points out, all of this data heightens concerns about whether these vaccines will be distributed fairly around the world. And doubts on this score, apparently, are not groundless.
