U.S. Rep. Jayapal, Experts Discuss Urgent Need for Manufacturing Plan from Biden Administration on Six Month Anniversary of First COVID-19 Vaccine
TUESDAY. JUNE 8. 11 A.M. ET
It’s been six months since the first person was vaccinated against COVID-19, yet as the heads of G7 countries prepare to meet this month, the vast majority of people globally still lack access to the vaccine.
In just one year, the global community could set up regional vaccine manufacturing hubs and produce 8 billion mRNA vaccine doses – enough to support global herd immunity – according to a new report from Public Citizen. The report details the specific steps required to set up the necessary facilities, including technology transfer and capacity building, as well as the costs, raw materials, consumables, personnel and line requirements to produce eight billion drug substance doses within a year.
Moderated by Peter Maybarduk, Director of Public Citizen's Access to Medicines program.
