End COVID Everywhere: An Open Letter to World Leaders - CARE

End COVID Everywhere

7 billion vaccine doses before the end of 2021 + 7 billion doses by mid-2022 to vaccinate 70% of the world.

COVID-19 is now a manmade pandemic of apathy.

Only 2% of people in low- and middle- income countries – where nearly 4.5 billion people live – have been vaccinated against the virus. Millions have already died, thousands more continue to die, and yet vaccines remain out of reach for billions.

We call on global leaders gathering at the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly to make 7 billion vaccine doses available before the end of 2021, and an additional 7 billion doses by mid-2022 to vaccinate 70% of the world by next summer.

Our Open Letter to World Leaders

COVID-19 is now a manmade pandemic of apathy. Only 2% of people in low-income countries have received a single dose, leaving the world’s most vulnerable to face COVID with no protection. This situation also lets new variants, like Delta, emerge and ravage the lives of millions.

We are joining with CARE to call on global leaders to make 7 billion vaccine doses available before the end of 2021, and an additional 7 billion doses by mid-2022 to fully vaccinate 70% of the world by next summer.

To get this done the world community must also invest in last-mile delivery systems, public education, and frontline healthcare workers to get vaccines from tarmacs into arms. Millions of doses could go to waste because low-income countries don’t have the support they need to get vaccines to vulnerable people.

We can save millions of lives — and trillions in further economic damage — by meeting this moment with the resources and political will needed to end COVID-19 for everyone, everywhere. Because none of us are safe until all of us are safe. 

"Now is the time to create and resource a roadmap for ending the pandemic, prioritizing the world’s most vulnerable. It’s time to step up and end the pandemic — for everyone.”
