British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Sunday that he would urge world leaders to commit to vaccinate the global population at the Group of Seven wealthy democracies' summit next week, AP reports.

Why it matters: Johnson said he expects the global population to be mostly vaccinated by the end of 2022, an act he says would be "the single greatest feat in medical history."

  • “The world is looking to us to rise to the greatest challenge of the postwar era: defeating COVID and leading a global recovery driven by our shared values,” Johnson said in a statement to AP.
  • The U.S. had previously stated its plan to share 80 million doses of its surplus vaccine by the end of June.

Scoop: The Modi shot campaign

The Biden administration is quietly pressuring India to restart vaccine exports with plans to offer a higher-profile role for Prime Minister Narendra Modi at an upcoming COVID-19 global summit in New York if he agrees to release vaccines soon, sources with direct knowledge of the high-level discussions told Axios.

Why it matters: India is the world's biggest vaccine maker. In March, Modi halted exports of the AstraZeneca vaccine — one of the cheapest on the market — because the virus was ravaging his own population.

COVID-19 vaccine booster doses are not necessary right now based on the current evidence, international public health experts — including two FDA vaccine leaders who are leaving the agency this year — wrote a new paper in The Lancet.

Why it matters: The paper is a rebuke of the Biden administration's push to open up booster shots for everyone.
