Club of rich countries to address unequal global vaccine rollout

The foreign ministers of some of the world’s richest and most powerful countries are meeting in London, where they are expected to address the unequal global rollout of #coronavirus vaccines. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken agreed on Tuesday that “the global roll out of vaccines will be key in defeating the pandemic,” according to a statement from Johnson’s office, and they highlighted the role of the Group of Seven nations “to increase international manufacturing capability” for vaccines.

While Western nations are on track to vaccinate half their populations by summer, inoculations in most lower-income countries have barely started, largely because of inadequate access to vaccines.
