These countries have announced the Covid-19 vaccine would be made free of charge to all their residents. The US President-elect also urge people to wear mask for 100 days.

On Wednesday and Thursday, the leaders of three developed countries, the United States, France, and Japan, promised that they would provide free Covid-19 vaccination to all residents.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex informed that their government had earmarked 1.5 billion euros to pay for the nationwide Covid-19 vaccine injection. The vaccination programme in France is expected to be launched within the next few weeks.

To be specific, 200 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been ordered by this government from different pharmaceutical companies worldwide. The PM insisted that the rapid development and mass injection of Covid-19 vaccine were the result of remarkable global mobilization, absolutely not a sign of compromising human safety.

Similarly, Japan has passed a Bill on December 2 that Covid-19 vaccines will be distributed free to all of its people. The Bill says this government will cover all the cost of the vaccination program for all 126 million residents. 60 million doses have been ordered from Pfizer while 25 million more will be provided by Moderna. Also, Japan confirmed it would get 120 million doses from AstraZeneca.

Covid 19 In Japan
Despite Japanese strictly following Covid-19 protocols, the cases are on the rise.

Following the two mentioned countries, the US President-elect Joe Biden promised that ‘free of charge’ Covid-19 vaccine will be delivered to all Americans. The announcement was made on Twitter where Joe tagged the US Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as well.

Besides the promise of free Covid-19 vaccination, a call for wearing masks for 100 days is also raised by Joe Biden. Accordingly, Americans are urged to wear face masks for his first 100 days in office for a significant reduction in Covid-19 infections.

Currently, the USA is the worst-affected country with the pandemic. In 24 hours, there are more than 210,000 Covid-19 cases are reported across this nation. Over 14 million cases have been confirmed, not to mention the increasing death toll that has no sign to decline yet.

The announcements of Japan, France, and the US on free Covid-19 vaccines also come at the same time as the UK’s approval for use of Pfizer/ BioNTech vaccine in this country in the next weeks.
