COVID-19 vaccinations reduce the chance of people contracting strains of the COVID-19 virus. Vaccinations will help alleviate the stress of already resource-stripped medical clinics and hospitals.
What is the Get one Give one campaign doing to alleviate vaccine inequality?
Get One Give One encourages each person who is able to receive a vaccine to contribute to the cost of providing an equivalent vaccine for a person in a developing country.
The funds gathered for the campaign will go towards the COVAX alliance, an alliance which includes UNICEF and GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation). GAVI negotiates vaccine prices with a range of organisations and political institutions to create affordable prices to break the vaccine inequality barrier.
