COVID-19 vaccine tracker

Posted 23 July 2021 | By Jeff Craven 

COVID-19 vaccine tracker

The worldwide endeavor to create a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is bearing fruit. Almost two dozen vaccines now have been authorized around the globe; many more remain in development.
 
To clarify the landscape for our readers, our vaccine tracker has been split in two. The first chart details vaccine candidates that are still in development to address the lack of vaccines and access in many countries around the world; the second chart lists vaccines that are authorized or approved by one or more country. To reveal in-depth information about each candidate, select the “Details” button above the chart or click on the green plus button next to each entry.
 
Information about the unprecedented public/private partnerships spawned by the COVID-19 public health emergency now can be found below the charts.
 
Our charts are updated every other week. If you wish to submit an update or notice an issue with this data, please email Focus at news@raps.org

COVID-19 vaccine initiatives

OWS: Operation Warp Speed is a collaboration of several US government departments including Health and Human Services (HHS) and subagencies, Defense, Agriculture, Energy and Veterans Affairs and the private sector. OWS has funded JNJ-78436735 (Janssen), mRNA-1273 (Moderna), and NVX‑CoV2373 (Novavax), V590 (Merck/IAVI), V591 (Merck/Themis), AZD1222 (AstraZeneca/University of Oxford), and the candidate developed by Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline.
 
OWS is “part of a broader strategy to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics.” Leaders of OWS say they could vaccinate as many as 20 million people by the end of the year and 100 million people by February.  
 
ACTIV: Within OWS, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has partnered with more than 18 biopharmaceutical companies in an initiative called ACTIV. ACTIV aims to fast-track development of drug and vaccine candidates for COVID-19.
 
COVPN: The COVID-19 Prevention Trials Network (COVPN) combines clinical trial networks funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID): the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN), HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN), Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Consortium (IDCRC), and the AIDS Clinical Trials Group.
 
COVAX: The COVAX initiative, part of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, is being spearheaded by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI); Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; and WHO. The goal is to work with vaccine manufacturers to offer low-cost COVID-19 vaccines to countries. CEPI’s candidates from companies Inovio, Moderna, CureVac, Institut Pasteur/Merck/Themis, AstraZeneca/University of Oxford, Novavax, University of Hong Kong, Clover Biopharmaceuticals, and University of Queensland/CSL are part of the COVAX initiative. The US joined COVAX on 21 January. The most up-to-date forecast of COVAX's vaccine supply can be found here. An interim distribution forecast, most recently published 3 February, can be found here.
