Join the People's Vaccine Day of action
Today, Monday 14 December, people from around the world are calling on pharmaceutical companies to share their vaccines with the world, using email, social media and phone calls.
What we're calling for
9 out of 10 people in poor countries could miss out on a Covid-19 vaccine, while rich countries have bought up enough doses to vaccinate their population nearly three times.
We're asking pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna to share their vaccine know-how with other manufacturers, by joining the World Health Organisation’s Covid-19 Technology Access Pool (C-TAP).
Join the action to help put pressure on pharmaceutical companies so everyone everywhere can get a vaccine.
