Iraq –Iraqi government exerts efforts to obtain Corona vaccine
Baghdad – Iraq 17/12/2020
Nazik Kazem, the Director of Public Health in Iraq, stated that the amounts requested by the company’s manufacturing the Covid vaccine were provided by the Iraqi Ministry of Health. Regarding the ability to develop countries to supply their people with the vaccine, Jasb Al-Hijami, Director General of the Baghdad Health Department, said that in addition to the Global Health organization, International Coalition is working to get vaccines to enter them. Providing the vaccine to developing and medium-sized countries is a major problem facing international organizations, especially because the “Pfizer” vaccine has to be kept at very low temperatures, which is a major concern in many parts of the world, as international reports have suggested that some rich country governments are negotiating to buy approximately 8.8 billion doses of potential Corona vaccines, which could mean that until at least 2024, many developing countries will not get vaccinated.
