Share COVID-19 Vaccines With Countries in Need
Rich countries have pre-ordered more COVID-19 vaccine doses than they need to vaccinate their entire populations, leaving little or none for poorer countries.
Canada alone has pre-purchased enough doses to fully vaccinate each Canadian 5 times.
Right now, over 60% of the world’s population live in countries that won't see widespread vaccine coverage until 2022 or even later, allowing the virus to continue to mutate and thrive. We all desperately want to get back to some kind of normal life, but if less wealthy countries don’t have access to vaccines, it will prolong the pandemic and drag down the global economy for everyone.
Sign our petition calling on the government of Canada to urgently start sharing their surplus doses with COVAX, the global mechanism for fair global vaccine distribution, and to help simultaneously vaccinate the most vulnerable at home and everywhere. Because, if the vaccine isn't everywhere, this pandemic isn't going anywhere.
To Prime Minister Trudeau,
We are calling on you to urgently start sharing Canada’s surplus COVID-19 vaccine doses with low-income countries and to help vaccinate the most vulnerable people at home and everywhere simultaneously. We want the most at-risk people protected wherever they live and recognize that none of us are safe until we defeat the pandemic everywhere.
