WHO calls for moratorium on revaccinations until end of September


A temporary moratorium on revaccinations should be imposed until the end of September, World Health Organisation director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a press conference on Wednesday.

WHO experts, however, believe that the moratorium will probably need to be extended further in order to vaccinate enough people worldwide before the end of the year.

WHO estimates that there is currently a global disparity in access to COVID-19 vaccines, with far fewer people in poorer countries fully vaccinated or receiving at least one dose than in richer countries where vaccines are produced and governments have started talking about revaccination. Earlier, the WHO director-general had also called for at least 10% of the population in each country to be vaccinated by September.
