This week, we head to South Africa for a front page on vaccine availability. For this week’s discussion, please consider the following questions as a starting point. What is your understanding from the headline alone? The article highlights vaccine inequity. How do you feel seeing one country securing enough vaccines for only 3% of the population whilst others have more than enough for everyone? And what are the risks to the global pandemic response of not making vaccines available as widely and as fairly as possible? Please let us know your thoughts below.
