Vaccinating the World
As frustratingly slow as the COVID-19 vaccination rollout has been in the United States, it's a lot worse in many parts of the world, especially lower-income nations. The International Rescue Committee estimates that only 20% of populations in these nations are likely to be vaccinated in 2021.
The reasons for immunizations falling behind, according to the IRC, range from shortages of COVID-19 vaccine supplies to vaccine nationalism that may exclude those from vulnerable parts of the world.
The pandemic, of course, and its aftereffects won't truly disappear until most people everywhere are vaccinated.
