What is “vaccine nationalism”?
When a country tries to get vaccine doses only for its citizens or residents, this is called “vaccine nationalism”. Such a situation arises when a country tries to reserve the vaccine in a way for its domestic market and citizens before it becomes available in other countries. For this, the government of the country concerned concludes a pre-purchase agreement with the manufacturer of the vaccine.

‘Vaccine nationalism’ is nothing new
It is not the first time that all the countries of the world have walked the path of “vaccine nationalism”. There was a similar build-up of vaccines around the time of the H1N1 flu epidemic in 2009. Then Australia was the first country to successfully manufacture the H1N2 flu vaccine. But he restricted the export of this vaccine. In contrast, some rich countries had entered into a pre-purchase agreement for the vaccine with several pharmaceutical companies. Only the United States has signed an agreement for 6 lakh vaccine doses.
