COVID-19 Vaccines: The Latest Airfinity Estimates

Monday, October 4, 2021 - 9:30am to 10:30am Washington DC time


  • Rasmus Bech Hansen, CEO and Founder, Airfinity

Airfinity is producing the most-referenced, real-time estimates of COVID-19 vaccine production, purchasing, stockpiling, expiry and delivery. As ministers of finance join the World Bank-IMF meetings this week, we discuss Airfinity’s latest estimates showing a rapid upwards trend in production as well as a normalization of vaccine manufacturing and supply chains in the coming months; their work also highlights the extent of stockpiling by high-income country governments, the risks of massive wastage related to expiry dates, as well as the mismatch between vaccine delivery timelines and needs in countries with low vaccination rates and high case fatality rates.

Join us at CGD for a presentation and discussion with Rasmus Bech Hansen, CEO and Founder of Airfinity, on the key facts and issues for finance leaders related to vaccines as they consider priorities over the coming months.
