Diseases have been a problem for mankind since the beginning of the human race. However, for the past 220 years, vaccines have been used to counter the disease and save millions of lives. To this day, 17 deadly viruses have vaccines, but not everyone has access to this valuable resource. Pakistan, which is a developing country, does not have high access to important vaccines like the covid 19 vaccine. Only 40 million people are vaccinated in Pakistan out of 200 million people. Pakistan is a country that is in need of better access to common vaccines.
Pakistan currently understands the importance of getting vaccines out to the public and has been attempting to get 70 million people vaccinated by the end of 2021. To make this possible, Pakistan has donated 1.1 billion dollars to help acquire more vaccines. Pakistan’s government has passed a law in 2015 which encourages people to get vaccinated for common diseases like chickenpox or the flu. In 2021, the covid 19 virus is considered a threat, and people are encouraged to get vaccinated. As of this time, 36% of people have the first dose of the vaccine and only 21% of people have both doses. The UN has been attempting to make the vaccine available to everyone in the world which has only benefited Pakistan a small amount. The UN has provided Pakistan with 45 million vaccines.
Pakistan’s plan to have 70 million people vaccinated by the end of 2021 is the best course of action and the best method to have people get vaccinated by the end of 2021. There have not been any other countries that have given aid to Pakistan to help them fund vaccinations. However, countries have donated money to acquire more covid 19 vaccinations to allow people to get vaccinated easier and to allow more people to get vaccinated.
