Do wealthier nations have a moral duty to ensure worldwide vaccination?
Closed

The G7 summit will take place this Friday, and UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, plans to urge leaders of other wealthy nations to get onboard in vaccinating the world against Covid-19 by the end of 2022. So far, the United States, France, Germany, Italy and Japan have all stated just how many doses they will commit to the global vaccine-sharing programme, Covax.

However, the United Kingdom and Canada have yet to put official numbers on their planned contributions. Speaking of the event, Mr Johnson hopes his allies will "rise to the greatest challenge of the post-war era" by joining him in "vaccinating the world by the end of next year." He plans to lay out a global target for all involved.

The meeting will be the G7 leaders' first in-person get together since the beginning of the pandemic, while also marking US Joe Biden's first state visit to the United Kingdom since becoming president. But, prior to this announcement, many MPs and peers had wrote to Boris Johnson to urge his following in fellow G7 countries' footsteps, like Germany, France and Italy who have already pledged to donate a minimum of 100 million doses before the end of the year.

What are your thoughts on this news?

Do you agree that wealthier nations have a responsibility to step up and ensure poorer countries have access to the vaccine?

What do you imagine Johnson may lay out in his proposals?

Not exactly as the poorer countries will soak up all the money and aid given to them and still want more for the ever growing populations that will not work.

I saw an item on tv stating that main problem is time. It would take 7 years to fully vaccinate everybody in the slums of India. This is just mindblowing.

I definitely think that rich countries should help poorer countries, but we need to ensure that the vaccines go to those that need them and not to the political elite or businessmen.

Wealthier nations should support the ones in need in this fight against the virus. But after the vaccination we all should adapt to the precautionary measures like washing hands, and leaving distance from others. There will be more pandemics like this...

Any kind of help is welcome in fighting this virus, I think the richer countries should support the poorer ones.

This is a very great idea. Speaking as a person from one of the less richer countries where our own government doesn't have plans for us to move forward, I would say we really need people like this who are trying to help other countries. Even if it's not for the others, but to protect their own people, it's okay.

i think people better off could help those less fortunate but the world doesnt seem to have many people with that standpoint. everyone will usually fend for themselves and that would be it
