Professor Jackie Taylor, President of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow has endorsed the statement from the Faculty of Public Health Enhancing UK action and promoting equity of access to global COVID-19 vaccines.

Professor Taylor said:

“The UK has shown leadership through its £548 million funding to the Covax initiative, which should ensure more than 180 countries have fair and early access to COVID-19 vaccines. Though this will help everyone, our global interdependencies show our safety from the virus ultimately depends on vaccine coverage in all countries. This move by the Faculty of Public Health is the right thing to do and I am proud that our College has supported it through our membership of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) which endorses this positive move to enable enhanced access to the Covid-19 vaccine.”
