No patents for vaccines

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

I signed the petition for the people’s vaccine 2021, which says:

We call on you urgently to ensure access to lifesaving Covid-19 vaccines, treatments and equipment for everyone in the world. Patents should be suspended, technological knowledge shared freely and openly, and no profiteering allowed during this pandemic. Governments, scientists and pharmaceutical companies must cooperate and combine resources to ensure no one is left behind. The pandemic will not be over, until it’s over everywhere.

Yes, I believe that all information about how to make vaccines and any other pharmaceutical product should be freely available to everybody. It is a scandal that governments are struggling about prices and conditions for getting Covid-19 vaccines with its so-called owners.
