Fascinating @statnews read by @HelenBranswell on how the #COVID19 pandemic may have “made flu’s diversity more manageable” by shrinking the global pool of flu viruses, making it easier to select flu vaccines: https://t.co/4vP1mLYavc

Great news that @AstraZeneca’s #COVID19 vaccine demonstrated high levels of field protection of the Delta variant in this preprint. This vaccine has made up 90%+ of #COVAX deliveries so far worldwide & is playing a vital role in lower-income countries: https://t.co/LMONHNbHs4

To increase #COVID19 vaccine production we need of the support of all manufacturers across the world. We need to stop export bans and boost capacity for future threats. Thanks @bbcnickrobinson for inviting me to speak about the need for an unprecedented scale up: https://t.co/hKM5FXDNbj

“It’s not only the right thing to do, but it’s also in every country’s interest” @GaviSeth tells @Peston that it’s crucial that we vaccinate the rest of the world in order to prevent the rise of new variants and stop the pandemic. #Peston https://t.co/BYZPYGK1Pq

Innovative financing tools like #COVAX and IFFIm’s vaccine bonds are essential for ensuring #vaccinequity and ending the #COVID19 pandemic. @GaviMarieAnge and Kennth Lay’s interesting @barronsonline’s article explains how: https://t.co/d5MrRv8vSe

Through #COVAX we have highly effective distribution channels to reach lower-income countries, but we still need investments now to increase global vaccine manufacturing capacity so we’re better prepared for future pandemics. My take for @TIME: https://t.co/1ulMabimwt

Like other disease elimination efforts, polio was set back by #COVID19. To overcome the final barriers to eradication, the GPEI's new strategy aims to improve community engagement, integrate with other health services and innovate to #EndPolio for good: https://t.co/5LI7veG5Q0 https://t.co/8H6SwDkDNM

To turn this promise into reality, we urge the G7 to: 🚨 Start to #DonateDosesNow to close the gap this summer. 🚨 Ensure there’s enough money to get vaccines off the tarmac and into arms.   https://t.co/9n4WRLczje

#G7 leaders’ commitments to share  870 million additional #COVID19 vaccines is a critical milestone as we work towards our goal of leaving no-one behind. This is exactly the kind of global solidarity the world needs to end this crisis: https://t.co/z8a4L0wuEM

COVAX needs doses now, while global supplies are low and countries have the capacity to deliver them. I’ve outlined why it would be a tragedy to get them too late, when there are millions of people around the world in desperate need: https://t.co/5BXurjuxom Via @gavi https://t.co/d9FOMctkcw
