The World Health Organization’s director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he wanted Covid-19 vaccination campaigns taking place in every nation across the globe within the next 100 days.

“I want to see vaccination under way in every country in the next 100 days so that health workers and those at high risk are protected first,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a press conference in Geneva, reported AFP.

Meanwhile, European governments said the credibility of their vaccination programmes was at risk on Friday after U.S. pharmaceutical firm Pfizer announced a temporary slowdown of deliveries of its COVID-19 vaccines.

Shots developed by Pfizer with its German partner BioNTech began being delivered in the EU at the end of December, but around nine of the 27 EU governments complained of “insufficient” doses at a meeting this week, a participant said.
