Currently, the roll out of the vaccines in high-income countries is threatening to disrupt fair access to vaccines for children and their families in less wealthy and developed countries. As we've seen, this devastating pandemic knows no borders.
Children around the world are losing their parents, family members, teachers, and health care workers, which is deeply impacting their lives and their communities. The economies they live in are hard hit, pushing them into poverty.
One life is not worth more than another. Countries who can afford lifesaving vaccines should not have access over countries who cannot.
The world's leading expert on childhood, with over 100 years of uniquely child-focused expertise, Save the Children is right now responding to the COVID-19 crisis in 87 countries, including the United States – so far directly reaching 7.7 million children.
Today, we are helping global health groups to make decisions that will ensure COVID-19 vaccines are equitably allocated, affordable and available. Save the Children is also calling on more public health investment to ensure that the resources going to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine to adults do not take away resources needed to provide lifesaving vaccines to children.
Will you join the fight? Sign and stand with Save the Children to ensure need, not wealth, guides fair access to COVID-19 vaccine!
