'VAX LIVE': The Concert to Reunite the World and Ensure Everyone Has Access to COVID-19 Vaccines
Hosted by Selena Gomez, the special will feature performances by J.Lo, Foo Fighters, and more.
The pandemic has shaken health care systems around the world over the past year, exposing the dangers of vaccine nationalism and how structural inequalities prevent people from receiving equal access to care. But a global recovery is underway, with more people getting vaccinated against COVID-19 every day and wealthy countries pledging to donate vaccines to low-income nations.
As part of our efforts to help end the pandemic for everyone, everywhere, Global Citizen is announcing VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World, a global broadcast and streaming special that aims to ensure equitable vaccine distribution around the world, tackle COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy, and celebrate a hopeful future as families and communities reunite after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
With support from the World Health Organization (WHO), European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Italian Prime Minister and G20 Chair Mario Draghi, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, Norwegian Prime Minister of Norway Erna Solberg, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, and the State of California, VAX LIVE will be hosted by Selena Gomez and feature performances by Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Vedder, Foo Fighters, J Balvin, and H.E.R.
