This paper outlines and compares the various issues that are associated with vaccine patent waivers. It focuses on how to increase equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines. It specifically considers the view of different sections like impact on tourism, equity, supply chain management, equal access, and Indian philosophy. We argue that while various sectors have got adverse impacts due to a shortage of vaccines and in some cases, people got fully vaccinated due to hoarding related to the vaccine. The report proposes current and proposed mechanisms which can be highly complementary if used together to make equal access possible for all. There are certain challenges in terms of IPR and legal processes which should be addressed. The flexibility under laws can be used for the betterment of people by following proper procedures. The companies should be empowered to maximize the production and make the vaccination so that everyone gets access to it.
