Charlize Theron: 'We need a fairer distribution of Covid vaccines'
BBC, 27 Oct 2021
Charlize Theron says countries have to start sharing vaccines if we are to reach the World Health Organization's goal of vaccinating 70% of the planet next year.
The actress, who has joined the social justice organisation Ford Foundation, wants the World Trade Organization to agree a waiver on vaccine patents - so countries can manufacture their own jabs.
Theron also questioned some countries' starting vaccine booster programmes, when only 5% of Africa's population has been vaccinated.
