Global Citizen’s Message For “VAX LIVE”

In their own words, Global Citizen explains that, “A global recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic depends on global herd immunity, which means everyone must have equal access to vaccines, tests, and treatments around the world.
“If wealthy countries continue to hoard vaccines, the pandemic will evolve for years to come as new COVID-19 strains emerge,” rounded out in an announcement.
“VAX LIVE” will air at 8:00p.m. EST on May 8. Fans around the globe can catch the event hosted by Selena Gomez on ABC, CBS, YouTube, and iHeartRadio’s app.
