Equitable access to safe and effective vaccines is critical to ending the Covid 19 pandemic, so it is hugely encouraging to see many vaccines proving and going into development. Equitable access to safe and effective vaccines is critical to ending the Covid 19 pandemic, so it is hugely encouraging to see so many vaccines proving and going into development. Safe and effective vaccines are a game changing tool, but for the foreseeable future we must continue wearing masks, cleaning our hands, ensuring good ventilation indoors, physically distancing and avoiding crowds. Being vaccinated does not mean that we can throw caution to the wind and put ourselves and others at risk, particularly because research is still ongoing into how much vaccines protect not only against disease but also against infection and transmission. But its not vaccines that will stop the pandemic, its vaccination. We must ensure fair and equitable access to vaccines, and ensure every country receives them and can roll them out to protect their people, starting with the most vulnerable.
