“The reality is that right now many of the wealthiest nations are starting to stockpile vaccines. The great news is there have already been many nations around the world that are starting to donate doses.” Hugh Evans said. “Australia, for example, donated a million doses to Papua New Guinea. We know the Norwegian government decided to make a donation of doses. He concluded with, “There’s really great momentum that is building.”

Gomez said on the occasion, “This is a historic moment to encourage people around the world. The encouragement to take the Covid-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them. Call on world leaders to share vaccine doses equitably and to bring people together for a night of music. In a way that hasn’t felt possible in the past year. I can’t wait to be a part of it.” She added.
