Quoted @WHO

A year into the #COVID19 pandemic, we must come together to protect and invest in the people who protect us all, no matter where they live.

Sign the declaration for #VaccinEquity:
👉

If we want to become a fairer, more equitable world, to tackle climate change & share responsibilities for the future, #VaccinEquity is the first opportunity to demonstrate we can do that. We must start with #ZeroDiscrimination:
👉

People living with #tuberculosis also face discrimination. Stigmatizing people with TB can prevent those most in need from accessing prevention, treatment and care services. It is also socially devastating.

It's time for action! Stand against stigma!

"And even as #COVID19 vaccines continue to roll out, we urge all governments and individuals to remember that vaccines alone will not keep you safe.

Vaccines will help to save lives, but if countries rely solely on vaccines, they’re making a mistake"-@DrTedros

"In time there will be enough #COVID19 vaccine for everyone, but initially vaccines are a limited resource that we must use effectively.

#HealthWorkers and older people must come first"-@DrTedros #VaccinEquity #ACTogether

"Equitable access to #COVID19 vaccines is not just the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do.

The more the virus circulates, the more opportunity it has to mutate in ways that can make vaccines less effective"-@DrTedros #VaccinEquity #ACTogether

"We have made progress, but this is just the beginning of what COVAX was set up to achieve. We still have a lot of work to do to realize our vision of starting #COVID19 vaccination in all countries within the first 100 days of this year. We have just 40 days left"-@DrTedros
