Scary reality: The results of this election will decide whether Americans will even have access to COVID-19 vaccines.

I’ve spent years researching vaccines and global health and of all the things in the pandemic, the politics of this scares me most.

Let me explain why…

1/7: Trump’s fight with China continues to haunt us as the administration refuses to join the the Covid-19 Vaccines Global Access Facility.

Trump said he did not want to be constrained by “corrupt World Health Organization and China”.

Yet China may be the best bet...

2/7: China has a more balanced portfolio of potential COVID-19 vaccines as well as an actual track record for vaccine development.

By ignoring global collaboration, we are quite literally PUTTING ALL OF OUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET

3/7: If China or any other country should beat America to the finish line in vaccine development, membership in the WHO would likely put us on the fast-track to sharing in those benefits.

And now enter’s President Trump’s withdraw from the WHO…

4/7: An American ‘WHEXIT’ will have major implications for healthcare and public health efforts globally and domestically.

Top WHO priorities such as polio eradication and Universal Health Coverage will suffer globally at the loss of American funding

5/7: Even if you aren’t worried about global health...

“WHEXIT” will further reduce America’s power in the global community.

It will fracture mutually beneficial relationships with numerous countries across the globe, influencing economic and global security.

6/7: Whether or not President Trump is elected for a second term, the administration has sent a strong signal to the global health community that America’s official position, for now, is non-cooperation

7/7: WHO is the only body capable of leading and coordinating the global response to COVID-19.

As infection rates and mortality continue to rise in the US and many other countries have flattened the curve, this is the worst possible time for the US to shun its global allies

How the 2020 Election Could Affect Americans’ Access to a COVID-19 Vaccine
Voters face a choice on vaccine development: go it alone, or benefit from international cooperation.
At the beginning of this month, the Trump administration announced that it will not join an initiative for global cooperation in rapidly developing a COVID-19 vaccine partially led by the World Health Organization. The initiative will be known as the “Covid-19 Vaccines Global Access Facility,” or Covax for short. A spokesman for the White House told the Washington Post “the United States will continue to engage our international partners to ensure we defeat this virus, but we will not be constrained by multilateral organizations influenced by the corrupt World Health Organization and China.”

This latest stubborn refusal to accept international help in fighting COVID-19 comes after the administration began the process of withdrawing from the WHO this summer. That move would have devastating impacts on global health efforts − the WHO depends on millions in annual funding from the U.S. − but could also pose a barrier to American access to COVID-19 vaccines. This latest announcement doubles down on the administration’s reckless “go-it-alone” strategy, as the pandemic continues to ravage the country.
