According to the organization, countries with low inoculation rates are seeing an increase in covid-19 cases.

As Americas are facing an unvaccinated pandemic, said the Pan American Health Organization (Guide) on Wednesday, warning that countries with low inoculation rates are seeing increases in cases of covid-19 and repeated the request for vaccine donations.

“We face a pandemic of unvaccinated people and the only way to stop it is to expand vaccination,” PAHO director Carissa Etienne said at a weekly briefing. “Vaccines are critical, even if no vaccine is 100% effective.”

The start of vaccinations in Haiti — which plunged further into turmoil after the assassination of President Jovenel Moise — shows how countries are ready to receive vaccine donations, she added.
