US To Boost Vaccine Manufacturing And Produce At Least A Billion Doses A Year

According to a news article of The Guardian, the U.S. government will produce a billion vaccine doses per year. U.S. President Joe Biden has planned to invest a significant part of the budget in this area. This initiative will help the undeveloped and developing countries to get an adequate vaccine supply. Through the increased supply of vaccines worldwide, the U.S. will ensure a protected environment against thecovid-19 virus. It will lead to a better health infrastructure worldwide.

The Vaccine Drive Will Have A Global Impact

The Guardian has also mentioned that the government will help companies that employ advanced technologies such as mRNA to produce vaccines. The U.S. government will strengthen the bond between public and private enterprises and collaborate to achieve the desired target. Though the goal of 1 billion vaccine doses per year seems far-fetched, the U.S must achieve this figure for itself and other countries across the world.

The Guardian quoted David Kessler, leader of vaccine distribution in the White House. He said, “ This is about assuring expanded capacity against Covid variants and also preparing for the next pandemic.” the covid-19 pandemic has distorted the health infrastructure of countries across the world.” The goal, in the case of a future pandemic, a future virus, is to have vaccine capability within six to nine months of identification of that pandemic pathogen, and to have enough vaccines for all Americans,” Kessler added. In addition to providing adequate vaccine supply for Americans, this vaccine drive also aims to boost global reserves.

Funds From American Funding Plan Will Be Used

If the goals set by the U.S. come to fruition, vaccine reserves for several countries across the world will increase. It will help them counter the imminent threat of vaccine shortage when the demand increases. The news article cited Kessler, who said that the vaccine drive would cost several billion dollars. He added that the money from the American Funding Plan would meet the expenses of this worldwide vaccine supply. According to government data, nearly 59% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, and around 16% are injected with booster shots.
