AstraZeneca has signed pacts with several vaccine producers worldwide to increase production facilities to meet demand. In a recent briefing, the WHO chief noted progress made by several companies, but said it would still be unrealistic to wait for a vaccine before 2021.

“We are making good progress … Realistically, it will be the first part of next year before we start to see people get vaccinated.”

However, much more study is needed before considering this fact: how affordable the vaccine will be, it will reach everyone, and whether everyone will have fair access to it. These concerns must also be addressed.
