5 Wins to Celebrate During the World's COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

Why Global Citizens Should Care
COVID-19 has taken the lives of more than 2.5 million people around the world, but global cooperation has made it so that we can end the pandemic faster. It is important for wealthier nations to share and donate vaccines to low-income countries around the world to protect vulnerable populations from contracting the coronavirus. Join us by taking action to support vaccines for all here.

The world has a long way to go before it will see an end to the COVID-19 pandemic, but there are still small victories we can celebrate along the way.

The Oxford University-based publication Our World in Data is reporting a rise in cases globally, a result of governments easing pandemic restrictions and more contagious variants becoming dominant in many parts of the world. It’s important to remember the necessity of social distancing and wearing a mask indoors, even as agencies like the United States’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) outline the activities fully vaccinated people can do.
