Moderna And Vaccines

COVID-19 drove a major acceleration in telemedicine, in digital health, in data sharing and medical research. What used to take years to develop or accomplish, we saw customers doing in days or weeks. And now that we’ve proven that this is possible at scale, how do we keep building this momentum and build together for a better world?

One of the most powerful examples of rapid innovation that was born out of the crisis is speed with which COVID-19 vaccines were developed. Moderna was one of the leading companies addressing this pandemic. The power of Moderna’s cloud-based strategy was demonstrated by the speed with which they delivered a highly effective vaccine and its capacity to scale production globally. Long before Moderna was a household name, they had used AWS-powered research engines to develop and deliver on the promise of mRNA vaccines.

Once the vaccine was developed, it quickly became apparent that the next challenge for our public health system would be efficient and equitable distribution. Around the world, AWS worked alongside more than 26 national governments to build vaccine management systems that could help organizations quickly scale up to meet the surging demand for vaccines. Here in the U.S., we worked with 32 states to support public health initiatives such as vaccine management, immunization management systems, electronic lab reporting, contact tracing, data lakes and more.

The provincial health authority in British Columbia (Canada) built a system that could accommodate 2.5 million residents in a matter of weeks. We had the privilege to work with the government of India to execute the largest vaccine drive in history through their application called CoWIN, a country-wide vaccine registration and scheduling management system. And here are the results: When it first opened, 1.9 million people accessed the system. Today, viewing the CoWIN dashboard, more than 850 million vaccine doses have been administered, and more than 1 billion people are expected to eventually use this system. That is scale. And that’s the power that you can have on the AWS cloud. Let me give you an example for just how big this operation is. On Sept. 17 of this year, CoWIN recorded 22.5 million vaccinations in one day. It was a historic milestone for India’s vaccination effort. That’s the equivalent of vaccinating every person in the state of New York today. That’s scale.
