The World Health Organization (WHO) is calling for a temporary halt to booster vaccinations against the coronavirus as long as many poorer countries are still waiting for vaccine doses. WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus criticized plans for such vaccinations being discussed in several countries Wednesday (Aug. 4) in Geneva. Booster vaccinations already underway should be suspended and plans for them put on hold until at least the end of September, he said, until at least 10 percent of people in all countries around the world are vaccinated. “High-income countries have administered 100 vaccine doses per 100 population,” Tedros said. “At the same time, low-income countries have only been able to administer 1.5 doses per 100 people because they lack vaccine. We urgently need a turnaround so that the majority of vaccines go to low-income countries instead of high-income countries.”
