COVID-19 vaccines are indispensable in the race to save lives and livelihoods during the pandemic. However, the unprecedented global need for vaccines presents a series of challenges, including corruption risks, inefficiency, and inequity. Examples of “vaccine capture” demonstrate how the powerful and well-connected are using their influence to receive vaccinations ahead of others, while the growing disparity in vaccinations across countries highlights glaring global inequality. In this context, an open government approach to vaccines can help governments to deliver vaccines effectively, efficiently, and equitably.

During World Immunization Week, OGP hosted a cross-sector conversation to surface open government approaches that can be incorporated into immunization policies and discuss how the OGP platform can be used to advance these reforms.
