Calls for Coronavirus vaccine support for countries with fragile health systems

Bridgend MP, Jamie Wallis, asked during questions to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office about support that can be made available for countries with fragile health systems.

The news that the UK Government have committed vast sums to organisations to support these countries has been welcomed by Dr Wallis.

Commenting after his question in parliament, Jamie said: “I asked the UK Government to make sure that if and when a vaccine is developed, we ensure that those countries whose health systems are more fragile than ours also get access to it.

“We have a moral duty to not just protect our own country but to ensure the world can be a safer place without Coronavirus.

“That is why I am pleased that the UK Government have committed £1.65 billion to GAVI over the next five years to help support the most vulnerable children living in the poorest countries.”
