The UK remains committed to rapid, equitable access to safe and effective vaccines, treatments and tests globally. We have already contributed £548m to the COVAX Advanced Market Commitment, a mechanism to support access for over 100 countries. The Prime Minister confirmed that the UK will share the majority of any surplus vaccines that the UK might have with COVAX and this multilateral mechanism, set up to support international co-operation on vaccines, remains the best way to ensure global equitable access to vaccines.
