These are the questions that have been answered:

  • Can you tell us about access to COVID-19 vaccination for community health workers? Since they may nto be considered "health workers" in the classification. 

  • According to plans, Peru will initiate a third booster dose of the vaccine with Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, because the time of application of the two doses already has a time of 6 to 8 months. What will be its cost? 

  • It is good that we have these donors supporting the LMICs however they are still very strict with approval despite the pandemic and emergency situation? 

  • Is there any information on to what extent CHWs are being included in the vaccine roll out, or are they generally being left out? 

  • How can we access the Gavi's budget template? 

  • Nigeria received vaccines from different donors and the population is extremely large (>200million). How can a revised NDVP support in closing the gaps of operational fund which delays logistic support for personnels and further vaccine allocation might have negative consequence? 

  • Can we inject COVID-19 vaccine to pregnant and lactating women? 

  • Can this partners platform be accessed by individuals working outside the governments and WHO?
