Countries are beginning to deploy COVID-19 vaccines, bringing new hope to the fight against the global pandemic. WHO, UNICEF, Gavi and many other partners are working together to support countries in preparing for COVID-19 vaccine introduction. 

The COVID-19 vaccine introduction toolbox provides guidance, tools and training to equip countries to prepare for and implement COVID-19 vaccination. It is being supported as part of the COVAX, the vaccine pillar of the Access to Covid-19 Tools Accelerator. Intended to support Ministries of Health, health workers, partner organizations, and other stakeholders— this toolbox is organized in line with the Guidance on Developing a National Deployment and Vaccination Plan for COVID-19 vaccines and will be updated as new resources become available. 

  

In line with the launch of this toolbox, a series of webinars is organized on Guidance on Developing a National Deployment and Vaccination Plan for COVID-19 vaccines, to further support this work:
