According to the Uzbek health ministry, the country is working on the deal together with vaccine alliance Gavi.


Created in 2000, Gavi is an international organization dedicated to improve access to new and underused vaccines for children living in the world’s poorest countries. Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, reportedly helps vaccinate almost half the world’s children against deadly and debilitating infectious diseases


COVAX reportedly has agreements in place to access nearly 2 billion doses of several promising #COVID19 vaccine candidates, and has laid the groundwork for further doses to be secured through contributions from donors. By mid-year it will have delivered enough doses to protect health and social care workers in all participating countries that have asked to get doses in that timeframe. All other participants should get sufficient doses to cover up to 20 percent of their populations by the end of 2021, and further doses in 2022.
