Countries already using Pfizer coronavirus vaccine include UK, US, Canada and Singapore - ABC News

As Australia takes delivery of its first shipment of coronavirus vaccines, at least 44 countries have already begun inoculating their citizens using the Pfizer-BioNTech shot, World Health Organization data shows.

Dozens of other countries have also begun mass inoculations, but they have started early without WHO approval.

The Pfizer shot is the only vaccine with WHO emergency approval so far.

The countries using the vaccine are mostly located in Europe, with Canada, the United States, Chile, Singapore and some Middle Eastern countries also securing doses.

The UK began vaccinating residents in early December, with other European countries following suit in the days and weeks after.

Russia, China, Indonesia and some African and South American countries have started using either Russia's Sputnik V vaccine, the Chinese company Sinovac Biotech's CoronaVac or state-owned Sinopharm's vaccines.

In January, the WHO's vaccine-sharing scheme COVAX announced it was set to start rolling out vaccines to poor and middle-income countries this month, with two of three billion targeted doses expected to be delivered this year.

The WHO said it had reached an agreement with Pfizer-BioNTech for 40 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine.

"In this world we are as protected as our neighbour," said Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.

Bourla said the 40 million doses, a fraction of the company's total 2021 production estimate of two billion, would be sold on a non-profit basis.
