India’s decision to resume vaccine shipments important development: WHO

World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has hailed India’s decision to resume COVID-19 vaccine exports as an “important development” in support of the goal to reach 40 per cent vaccination in all countries by end of the year.
India on Monday said that it will resume export of surplus COVID-19 vaccines in the fourth quarter of 2021 under the ‘Vaccine Maitri’ programme and to meet its commitment to the COVAX global pool.
Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, however, said that vaccinating Indian citizens remains the topmost priority of the government.
