As The New York Times notes in an editorial covering Public Citizen’s “$25 Billion to Vaccinate the World” proposal:
“The United States is well on its way to protecting Americans from the coronavirus. It’s time to help the rest of the world. By marshaling this nation’s vast resources to produce and distribute enough vaccines to meet global demand, the United States would act in keeping with the nation’s best traditions and highest aspirations while advancing its geopolitical and economic interests. It is a moment of both obligation and opportunity.”
The United States must take the lead on vaccinating the world and ending the global COVID-19 pandemic. We urge you to invest $25 billion and the full commitment of the U.S. government to this humanitarian and economic imperative without delay.
Please share the petition with your network, and read our report now.
We must stop the billionaire Koch brothers from using their immense wealth to influence university research and spread their corporate-friendly ideology.
