COVID-19 vaccines could be ineffective in 12 months without proper distribution, according to report by Australian advocacy groups, NGOs, businesses

Tim Costello, from the campaign group End Covid For All, in conjunction with 11 partner organizations, released the major report, “A Shot of Hope - Australia’s role in vaccinating the World.” Costello warned that current COVID-19 vaccines could become ineffective in approximately 12 months if vaccinations in low-income countries continue to lag.

He urged the Australian government to commit an additional A$250 million (US$183 million) for vaccines in vulnerable countries. The report also proposed measures to advance vaccine equity and called for Australia to provide a further $50 million (US $37 million) to address vaccine hesitancy.
