We may need to periodically update vaccines & provide boosters, complicating the global vaccine enormously. Rich countries may be close to herd immunity by year's end. But the poor will be left far behind, w/ enormous health, econ, & diplomatic impacts. https://t.co/rtVyJCI1D6

Vaccinating 70-80% of the world's pop is a massive challenge: supply scarcity, weak infrastructure, affordability & vaccine hesitancy. We also must worry about variants evading vaccines & we don't know how long immunity will last.

It's unrealistic to think we'll get to global herd immunity soon, if ever. Many poor countries may not fully vaccinate their pops until 2024. Even then, the virus may become endemic. There are so many challenges https://t.co/0CrA12eyzh

An ideal time to learn more about the political history of @WHO. https://t.co/gGL09oMDSt

Is Virginia considering mandating #COVID19 vaccines, but giving a religious exemption? If so, it would be the first state to do so https://t.co/73HDkNLbQ6 Vaccine mandates are lawful but rare for adults: https://t.co/n9MQN3p1Wi

Fauci's Statement to @WHO Exec Bd: "The US will cease the drawdown of staff seconded to WHO & will resume regular engagement of USG personnel w/ WHO both directly & through our WHO Collaborating Centers." As director of WHO Center on Nat'l & Global Health Law, I am delighted.

Cooperation among the global community is vital for a commitment to justice. Our proposed equity agenda will save lives, propel economic recovery, and show that today’s fractured world can come together for a common cause.

Equitable distribution of the #COVID19 vaccine not only needs to happen around the world, but also within countries’ own borders. Those most vulnerable, including refugees and other marginalized communities, cannot be left behind.

While it’s great news that the U.S. under Pres. Biden will join COVAX, it needs more teeth. We’ve seen that even COVAX participants have become part of the problem of hoarding vaccines. The more supplies rich nations procure, the fewer doses remain for those relying on COVAX. https://t.co/HILSVuh0Gf

Leaders will want to prioritize their own people. However, only by vaccinating the world’s population can destabilizing global trends caused by #COVID19 be reversed. Unchecked spread of disease in low-income countries also hinders global economic recovery and undermines security. https://t.co/ebPslVsFet

In the global response to #COVID19, no one should be left behind

In @ForeignAffairs, @EricFriedman18, @SuerieMoon, & I argue why wealthy countries should equitably distribute vaccines. It's not just a humanitarian gesture but is in our national interests

Among the most important, but neglected @JoeBiden Exec Orders is the one boosting #COVID19 worker safety, stating "science-based guidance" is vital. We expect workers to keep our essential goods flowing, but we don't protect them-- workers like in meat packing & grocery stores

US needs data & eval of whether existing Rx & vaccines are effective against #SARSCoV2 variants. Now, we are leaving it primarily to pharma to test their products. But @CDCgov should develop real time testing of various strains to evaluate their impact on treatments and vaccines

US needs far better genomic surveillance. Investing in surveillance at @CDCgov & state/local/tribal health depts is crucial. We can't find what we don't actively look for.

#SARSCoV2 variants raise 4 vital, interrelated concerns

1 > transmissibility, like UK variant

2 > pathogenicity, so far little evidence of it

3 resistance to Rx like monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma

4 < efficacy of vaccines

What US must do 1X https://t.co/n128mIAZKj

Among all the assaults on the poor, Trump's Medicaid work requirements are among the most odious. Biden will surely cancel Medicaid work waivers, but we have to prevent @Scotus from deciding 2 pending cases in AR & NH. https://t.co/hz08Wd1kEm

Biden’s #COVID19 plan to vaccinate 100 mil in a 100 days lacks bold ambition. We can & should, double , even triple, that number. But I wholeheartedly support him. Unlike Trump, he will under promise & over deliver. We must stand in support.
