Home Page - English - Vaccinate Our World Now

If the immorality of vaccine rationing doesn't bother you,
the grave danger that it poses to the world should.

What is needed?

If we are to rid the world of COVID-19 – we must VOW to Vaccinate Our World now. We can do this by:

  • Raising $100 billion – enough to secure sufficient doses to Vaccinate Our World now.
  • Procuring 7 billion COVID-19 vaccines within one year for all the world’s citizens, particularly for people in developing countries.
  • Waiving or suspending all COVID-19 vaccine patents during the global public health emergency.
  • Eliminating all restrictions on the sharing of information and data—100% transparency is needed.
  • Promoting international cooperation, not politics, as the driving force for ending the pandemic.

From the map below, 2022 or 2023 is far too long for countries to wait for lifesaving vaccines!

If we’re to ensure vaccine equity, the world must:

$100 billion must be pledged to secure enough vaccines to inoculate the entire world. Leaders from the G20 and global financial institutions such as the International Monetary Fund and World Bank must VOW to step up their contributions immediately.

Even with current vaccine production ramped up to maximum levels, vaccine manufacturers are still unable to meet the demand for lifesaving COVID-19 doses. If the world is to fight this and future pandemics, vaccine production must be increased across every continent. A handful of pharmaceutical companies simply cannot be relied upon for vaccinating the entire world.

COVID-19 vaccines are primarily funded by taxpayers – not pharmaceutical companies. We must call for all vaccine manufacturers to openly share their technology and intellectual property – and for governments to ensure COVID-19 vaccines are declared a public good. We can look at past examples, such as the AIDS epidemic, and save the world as we did with antiretroviral medicines for HIV.

We must advocate for an enforceable mandate to ensure transparency and accountability for all countries and organizations when it comes to global public health.

The bulk of vaccine procurements have been accomplished through closed-door deals between individual governments and drug companies where little information is released on the details of the agreements, which drives up vaccine costs. During this and any pandemic, all vaccine agreements should be made public to encourage increased cooperation and to ensure all countries are able to access affordable medicines and vaccines.

Many nations, including Canada, the U.S., U.K. and European Union have purchased enough vaccines to vaccinate their populations multiple times over. With a worldwide shortage, these countries must be compelled to share their surplus vaccine stockpiles. At a time when the majority of the world has little access to vaccines, nations should establish a framework to ensure the rest of the world can also be protected. If one country isn’t safe from COVID-19—none of us are safe.

87% of the more than 700 million vaccines administered globally have gone to high-income or upper-middle-income countries, while low-income countries have received a mere 0.2%.
