Global vaccine herd immunity will be critical to ending the COVID-19 pandemic. But what is the “price tag” for purchasing and distributing vaccines to reach this goal? Where will the funding come from? In this webinar, we will examine ways to finance this global endeavor, including through the COVAX advanced market commitment and from government budgets. We will also explore vaccine prices as a barrier to access and ways to drive prices down.
