The COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating worldwide, with millions of lives lost and billions of people struggling to pay their bills and stay healthy. An effective vaccine can be a way out of this collective nightmare, but only if everyone can get it.
In the battle against COVID-19, we must always remember that COVID-19 anywhere is COVID-19 everywhere. That's why the scientific breakthrough towards a vaccine is crucial, but just the first part of the equation. Equally important is making sure that every single person on this planet can get a vaccine as soon as possible. The US President has tremendous power to help decide who gets access to protection from this virus, when and at what cost. That's why we're calling on President Biden to make the COVID-19 vaccine a People's Vaccine: free, fair, and available to all.
We are calling on President Biden to:
Sign your name and demand that President Biden commits to a People's Vaccine.
- Prioritize protection for those people most in need and most at risk, including frontline healthcare and social-care workers, essential workers, older people, people with pre-existing conditions at higher risk, and high-transmission communities here and around the world.
- Prevent monopoly control of production in order to mobilize large-scale and decentralized manufacturing of COVID-19 vaccines to adequately supply safe and effective vaccines for people here and around the world.
- Work collaboratively with world leaders and health authorities worldwide to deliver and implement a fair and equitable global distribution plan for the vaccine and all COVID-19 products and technologies.
