COVAX is best tool to reinforce European credibility on vaccines, says Italy's Draghi

Prime Minister Mario Draghi gave a speech at the Italian Senate ahead of the European council, praising the efforts of the COVAX, an international initiative and pillar of the Access to COVID-19 Tools Accelerator (ACT-A) formed after the COVID-19 pandemic started in order to provide global access to treatments, diagnostics, and vaccines. 

Draghi pointed out that COVAX, which Italy has contributed to, has guaranteed almost 30 million doses, and he said "we hope to make this mechanism more and more effective". Draghi further stated that reinforcing the European credibility on vaccines would require genuine international solidarity, and that "COVAX is the best tool to achieve this".
