UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors and supporters have signed an open letter to G7 leaders calling on them to make these urgent donations by August and to set out a roadmap to scale up donations as supplies increase.
This as the G7 meeting is set to get underway tomorrow.
UNICEF says the world has a lot of COVID-19 vaccines, but currently less than 1% of global supply is reaching people in low-income countries.
That is why they are urging richer nations to #DonateDosesNow.
Read the open letter HERE.
This is a pivotal time in the fight against COVID-19, as G7 leaders meet to set priorities for what form this fight will take in the coming weeks and months. I am pleased so many UNICEF supporters are joining our call for emergency support for COVAX. #DonateDosesNow
