Who is going to get the covid-19 vaccine first? The country that is developing it? As of now, several wealthy countries have already ordered millions of doses of the potential vaccines.

The first to get the Covid-19 vaccine will probably be the people in the country where the first effective vaccine is developed.

Several different vaccines are being prepared in different countries like China, the USA, Germany, and Britain. Many other vaccines are on different stages of testing worldwide. But the question is still there, who is going to have coronavirus vaccine first? It is being said that the COVID-19 vaccine would be first available to the country where it will be prepared.

However, this week United Stated expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said that he is quite hopeful that coronavirus vaccine will be available by the end of the year or early 2021. As many developed wealthy countries have already ordered millions of doses of experimental vaccines.

Earlier in June, Italy, Germany, Netherland, and France have signed an agreement with AstraZeneca to make sure the supply of 300 million doses of a possible COVID-19 vaccine to the European Union.

Moreover, groups that include the vaccine alliances GAVI are working to buy doses for poor countries, AstraZeneca agreed to provide license for its vaccine to India’s Serum Institute for the production of almost one billion doses.
