If we don’t prioritize vaccinations for our global community, COVID-19 will only get worse. Dangerous vaccine-resistant variants will continue emerging, millions more will die, and lockdowns and economic crashes will persist indefinitely. World leaders must act now and 'VOW' to ‘Vaccinate Our World’!
Low-income countries account for less than 1% of the more than 3 billion global vaccinations, and many nations – particularly developing countries – will not get enough COVID-19 vaccines until 2023 or later if the rollout continues at the current pace. This is unacceptable!
While the announcement by G7 countries to donate 1 billion COVID-19 vaccines to poorer nations is a step in the right direction, it is not sufficient to ‘Vaccinate Our World’. Leaders of wealthy countries must do more to ensure global vaccine equity.
Sign this petition and join AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) to urge world leaders to ‘VOW’ to ‘Vaccinate Our World’ by:
- Raising $100 billion – enough to produce at least 7 billion vaccines in one year,- Waiving all patents on COVID-19 vaccines and technologies to increase production worldwide,- Sharing excess vaccine doses with hard-hit countries and those without access,- Significantly increasing international cooperation to end the pandemic, and- Demanding 100% transparency from all countries on matters of global public health.
If one country has COVID-19 and no access to vaccines, then no countries are safe! With our collective signatures and voices—let us do all we can to help ensure everyone worldwide has access to a lifesaving vaccine!
