Call to Action! Dose Sharing for Global Vaccine Access

This week, advocates that included partners of the Pandemic Action Network sent two separate letters to U.S. President Joe Biden and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson — leaders of two countries with some of the highest potential vaccination coverage in the world — urging them to share their countries’ excess doses with the rest of the globe. Donating surplus doses of COVID-19 vaccine through COVAX is the fastest way to give low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) access to sufficient amounts of COVID-19 vaccines for their populations to reach herd immunity.
