Discussion Lounge: Vaccine Inequity with Prof. Mayda Gursel
COVID-19 vaccinations started on December 2020. Since then, as of 14 July 2021, 25.4% of the world population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. However, so far, only 1% of people in low-income countries have received at least one dose, demonstrating the current state of vaccine inequity. This discussion lounge will try to come up with suggestions to tackle vaccine inequity in the context of COVID-19 and possible future pandemics through a brainstorming session with interested participants.
