COVID-19 vaccine production and tariffs on vaccine inputs
Published 15 November 2021
This new study focuses on COVID-19 vaccines production and tariffs on vaccine inputs.
To identify possible “sensitive” or choke points for manufacturing of Covid-19 vaccines, this report explores the most-favoured nation (MFN) tariffs and imports of vaccine-related products by 27 of the world’s top vaccine manufacturing economies.
Tariffs on critical products to manufacture vaccines remain high, concludes the report, especially in some developing countries. To reduce costs and meet the acute needs for vaccines globally, the report calls for members' cooperation under the WTO to support the elimination and/or significant reduction of tariffs on the input products.
