Covid: WHO demands countries prioritise health worker vaccines

Health and Social Care Editor

The World Health Organization has reiterated its demand that vaccinating all health workers should be an urgent priority for every nation. It set a target of achieving that goal globally within 100 days back in January, but there are only nine days of that period remaining and the target has a long way to go.

The WHO’s director-general also said that while 560 million doses have been administered in 179 countries, many nations are yet to vaccinate a single person.
