Heidi Chow demands an end to vaccine apartheid

At the People’s Vaccine Alliance’s Global Rally for a People’s Vaccine Heidi Chow, campaigner for Global Justice Now, spoke about the injustice of vaccine apartheid and the need for governments to support waiving patent monopolies that pharmaceutical corporations have through rules at the World Trade Organization.

On the anniversary of the pandemic, we cannot stay silent in the face of vaccine apartheid. If this happened within a country where the richest citizens were vaccinated first and everyone else had to wait years for the vaccine, there would be a massive public scandal. But that’s what we’re seeing on a global level, and we need to expose the complicity of governments and companies in this global scandal and take action together for a people’s vaccine.
