COVAX is one of three pillars of the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, which was launched in April by the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Commission and France in response to this pandemic. Bringing together governments, global health organisations, manufacturers, scientists, private sector, civil society and philanthropy, with the aim of providing innovative and equitable access to COVID-19 diagnostics, treatments and vaccines. The COVAX pillar is focussed on the latter. It is the only truly global solution to this pandemic because it is the only effort to ensure that people in all corners of the world will get access to COVID-19 vaccines once they are available, regardless of their wealth.

Police Commissioner and Controller of the PNG COVID-19 National Pandemic Response David Manning issued Direction No.2 authorizing AstraZeneca vaccination to be administered in the vaccination roll-out program in Papua New Guinea.

Vaccines are now available to those above the age of 18
