Good morning, everyone, and nice to see you again after a long break. For those of you who similarly disappeared, we hope the respite was rewarding and invigorating, because — you guessed it — the familiar routine of online meetings, phone calls, and deadlines has magically returned. To cope, we are brewing cups of stimulation from a new batch of experimental blends. Our choice today is — drumroll, please … bananas Foster. Yes, this is a thing. So feel free to join us. Meanwhile, please enjoy a few tidbits as we play catch up and get set for the daily journey. Hope all goes well and you conquer the world. And of course, do stay in touch. …
COVAX, the World Health Organization initiative to distribute vaccines equally across the globe, shipped out a record 309 million doses in December but still ended the year far short of its goal for the year, The Washington Post tells us. The vaccine-sharing program shipped out a little more than 900 million doses to 144 countries in 2021, which is far short of the 2 billion-dose goal the program had set for itself, according to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, which co-directs COVAX. Still, December was the initiative’s best month, with vaccines distributed above the 155-million mark for the first time.
