Strategy to Achieve Global Covid-19 Vaccination by mid-2022


This strategy brief outlines the urgent actions required by the global community to vaccinate 70% of the world’s population against COVID-19 by mid-2022. The goal is to substantially increase population immunity globally to protect people everywhere from disease, protect the health system, fully restart economies, restore the health of society, and lower the risk of new variants. With interim targets of 10% full vaccination population coverage in all countries by the end-September 2021, and 40% in all countries by end-2021, the strategy aims to first protect health workers, older populations, and high-risk individuals with important co-morbidities, advancing next to all adults, followed by adolescents.
