Vaccine Waste

  100 million Covid-19 vaccines stockpiled by rich nations and set to expire by the end of the year.

The European Union holds 41% and the United States 32%.

“Rich countries like the U.K. are hoarding vaccines that are desperately needed in low- and middle-income countries. We should immediately hand doses over to Global South nations. But that alone will not be enough,” Global Justice Now director Nick Dearden said.
