Vaccine Equity

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

With omicron surging we are postponing the 5k for another 8 weeks.  That’s 56 more days to train and 56 more days to raise funds and awareness for vax equity!  We can’t wait to see you at the start line on March 12th.

We have the golden ticket to end the COVID-19 pandemic – safe and effective vaccines – but disregard for global vaccine equity will be our collective downfall. While all Americans have access to safe, free and effective COVID-19 vaccines, billions of people globally are still waiting to get vaccinated. Only 0.4% of 5.3 billion vaccine doses administered globally have been given in low-income countries.[1] Less than 2% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa has received one shot.  Moreover, most vaccines in low and middle-income countries have gone to young men; with women and vulnerable populations least likely to have gotten vaccinated. The UCSF Pandemic Initiative for Equity and Action is organizing a 5k fun run to promote global vaccine equity. All proceeds will go to get1give1 campaign: every $7 donated will fund someone somewhere getting vaccinated against COVID through the COVAX initiative. We invite YOU to participate, either virtually or locally, and donate to the https://get1give1worldwide.org/ vaccine campaign.
