Take Action: Sign the Open COVID Pledge

This week the Salk Labs are seeking out people, universities, institutions, and non-profits to sign the Open COVID Pledge.

Immediate action is required to halt the COVID-19 Pandemic and treat those it has affected. It is a practical and moral imperative that every tool we have at our disposal be applied to develop and deploy technologies on a massive scale without impediment.

We therefore pledge to make our intellectual property available free of charge for use in ending the COVID-19 pandemic and minimizing the impact of the disease.

Please help get the word out. Tell friends about the Open COVID Pledge, send emails, post on social media, write letters to the editor, or come up with your own creative ways to get the word out and add organizations to this effort!

Free The Vaccine Op-Ed in The Tyee

The Canadian news magazine The Tyee published an op-ed by Free The Vaccine mentor Louise Kyle, discussing the campaign around the 50th anniversary of Jonas Salk’s polio vaccine. As Louise writes,

There’s a simple solution to ensure that all diagnostics, vaccines and treatments for COVID-19 that are developed with Canadian public dollars are equitably priced, available to everyone and free at the point-of-delivery. We are asking for conditions on all public funding so that when the people pay for the vaccine, the vaccine gets to the people.
