Vaccine supply remains a key challenge, but this week I've been pleased to see leaders & manufacturers working to: 1. share doses with COVAX 2. make new deals involving tech-transfer & sharing of know-how 3. call for lifting trade barriers as soon as possible #ACTogether

Trickle down vaccination is not an effective strategy for fighting a deadly respiratory virus. #COVID19 has already cost more than 3.3 million lives and we’re on track for the second year of this pandemic to be far more deadly than the first. #ACTogether for #VaccinEquity now!
