NO COVID Vaccine For Everyone Until 2024!

It appears facemasks and social distancing is here to stay for a while. Read on…

This is going to suck! Apparently, there is NOT enough COVID vaccine for everyone and it’s going to take 4 years to have enough for everyone.

While, the CDC has told states to be ready to start vaccinating by the end of October, but other experts say such a timeline is unrealistic. Read on to find out why…

NO COVID Vaccine For Everyone Until 2024 reports that the Serum Institute warns that companies are not increasing production capacity quickly enough for everyone.

Here is what we have learned:

According to FR24News:

The chief executive of the world’s largest vaccine maker has warned that there will not be enough Covid-19 vaccines available for everyone in the world to be vaccinated until the end of 2024 at the earliest.

Adar Poonawalla, managing director of the Serum Institute of India, told the Financial Times:

It will take four to five years for everyone to receive the vaccine on this planet.

Poonawalla estimated that while the Covid-19 vaccine is a two-dose vaccine-like measles or rotavirus – the world will need 15 billion doses.

Based in the city of Pune, in western India, the family-run Serum Institute has partnered with five international pharmaceutical companies, including AstraZeneca and Novavax, to develop a Covid-19 vaccine and is committed to producing 1 billion doses, of which it has promised half in India.

The company may also partner with the Russian research institute Gamaleya to manufacture the Sputnik vaccine.

DEMAND for a COVID vaccine:

The commitment for a COVID vaccine far exceeded the capacity of other vaccine producers.

He adds:

I know the world wants to be optimistic about this. . .[but]I haven’t heard anyone come close to this [level] now.

In closing:

It will take four to five years for everyone to receive the vaccine on this planet.

Poonawalla’s perspective is relevant since the Serum Institute is responsible for producing vaccine doses for much of the developing world. The company is the world’s largest vaccine manufacturer by volume, producing 1.5 billion doses of vaccine each year for use in more than 170 countries to protect against many infectious diseases, such as polio, measles and the flu.

Under its deal with AstraZeneca, the COVID vaccine is set to cost around $3 dollars for 68 countries and under its deal with Novavax, for 92 countries.

COVID Vaccine Goals:

The goal is to have three-quarters of the world’s population could be vaccinated by mid-2023, said Peter Hale, executive director of the Foundation for Vaccine Research in the United States.

Hale said:

This should be enough to curb the spread of infection and block the pandemic – but not enough to send the virus to the trash of history.

The bottom line is that we are all going to have to wait a whole Presidential term for a vaccine or hopeful cure by then.
