Facebook Live: Demanding the People’s Vaccine

Facebook Live: Demanding the People’s Vaccine


As vaccine availability gives new hope to many that the end of the COVID-19 pandemic may be in sight, communities around the world are still being left out and left behind by not having access to vaccinations. Following mounting international pressure from governments, activists, and organizations like AFSC, the Biden administration announced on May 5 its intentions to support a waiver of World Trade Organization rules on intellectual property that would allow for easier sharing of technology and ingredients behind the taxpayer-funded vaccines developed by companies like Pfizer and Moderna. Join AFSC’s Pauline Muchina as she gives context to the situation, updates on next steps to hold the Biden administration to its word, and what you can do to help ensure that people in lower-income and marginalized communities worldwide have a chance to be protected from COVID-19.

Join us on Facebook Live every Thursday at 4pm ET for updates from AFSC staff.
