Nations Pay Wildly Different Prices For Vaccines

In an ideal world, the price of a vial of vaccine would be consistent across the globe.

But at this stage of the vaccine rollout, it’s difficult to find out basic facts – like, how much a vial costs. Companies are keeping exact prices a secret.

To bring more transparency, UNICEF has compiled a chart of how much countries and nonprofit groups are paying for doses, drawing from local news reports, reporting by Reuters and documents obtained from various sources.

There’s a significant range in price because some vaccines are more expensive to produce than others.

But even for the very same vaccine – the AstraZeneca vaccine touted as one of the most affordable in the world – there are notable differences.
