Vaccine Affordability

Data from UNICEF and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, shows that the average cost per COVID-19 vaccine dose ranges between US$ 2 – $ 40. The estimated distribution cost is US$ 3.70 per person vaccinated with two doses, after accounting for vaccine wastage.

This represents a significant financial burden for low-income countries, where the average annual per capita health expenditure amounts to US$ 41.
