The Arms Race

We need to get the world vaccinated as fast as possible. We’re in an arms race: vaccines vs variants.


Why?

We need to get the world vaccinated as fast as possible. We’re in an arms race: vaccines vs variants.

Today, we’re losing. The variants are racing ahead, and the vaccines are falling short.


How?

We are asking the G7 and G20 to fund and deliver 7 billion jabs by the end of 2021 and a further 7 billion by mid-2022, vaccinating 70% of the world’s population by then. You can read our coalition’s letter, originally published in the Financial Times, for more detail.

If you want to help, you can:

1. Write to your MP at Write To Them
2. Volunteer to help on the campaign by emailing us at thearmsrace@tortoisemedia.com


We are going to track everyone in the race – the public, businesses, vaccine manufacturers and governments.

It starts now.
