The two billion doses are expected to cover the first phase of the coronavirus vaccination, targeting 20 percent of the recipient countries’ unprotected populations, including healthcare workers, frontline workers, people with underlying circumstances, and especially the elderly.

According to PAHO, Pfizer is also anticipated to provide one million vaccines to be practiced in some regional homelands under a pilot project next month.

Mass vaccination would help to restrict the spread of lethal coronavirus among the population. Vaccination distribution in an equal manner will indicate rapid vaccination among all. Immediate consequences are also a significant aspect of this pandemic.
