Africa remains one of the least vaccinated continents and this is about to change according to WHO. Headway is being made in efforts to secure more coronavirus vaccines for Africa, where less than 3.5% of the population has been fully inoculated, according to the head of the World Health Organization.

“Between now and the end of the year we expect the volumes of vaccines coming into Africa to increase substantially,” Tedros Ghebreyesus, the WHO’s director-general, said in a speech on Wednesday. “That makes it crucial that all countries step up their preparations to roll out vaccines.”
