When speaking about achieving vaccine “equity” in underdeveloped nations, and stressing the need to focus on administering the booster to the elderly and most vulnerable first, Ghebreyesus accidentally said the quiet part out loud.
From his comments:
“We need to always put the equity issue into that factor. Because unless we try to vaccinate the unvaccinated, especially that we are missing because of equity problems, we may not get the desired outcome. It’s not just about booster issues.
For instance, some countries are doing boosters very aggressively, while their hospitals are filled with people who are not vaccinated.
So if it’s [the Covid-19 vaccine and booster] going to be used it’s better to focus on those groups of severe illness and death, rather as we see some countries are using to give boosters to kill children – this is not right.”
