Should the US Share Their Surplus of COVID-19 Vaccines?
By the middle of May 2021, the US is expected to have an oversupply of COVID-19 vaccines. While the population consists of about 260 million adults, the government currently has commitments from manufacturers for enough vaccine to cover about 400 million people. Some officials believe it would be wise to hold onto the surplus since children still need to be vaccinated, and it is unknown whether booster shots will be needed in the future. However, many countries are in dire need of vaccines, and sharing this oversupply could help end the pandemic sooner.
By mid-May, the US will have an oversupply of COVID-19 vaccines. Some think the US should keep the surplus, but sharing with other countries could help end the pandemic sooner. Are you for or against the US sharing their surplus of COVID-19 vaccines?
