Getting to 70 percent: The commitment to vaccinate the planet in one year

October 20, 2021


At the US government’s recent Global COVID-19 Summit, world leaders committed to several ambitious goals, including getting 70 percent of the world vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of 2022. To get there, the global community will need to significantly ramp up efforts, from increased financing and action-oriented political leadership to technology transfer and expanded manufacturing capacity.

In this PATH Live Forum, panelists will discuss lessons learned from global COVID-19 response efforts to date, exploring how we got to this moment, where we stand today, and what needs to happen to achieve vaccine equity and end the acute phase of the pandemic.
