Statement on Global Vaccine Summit

Global Vaccine Summit

The UK is hosting Global Vaccine Summit on June 4.

The UK hosted Global Vaccine Summit on June 4 will now be an entirely virtual event.

The Summit is an important milestone to secure support for Gavi’s five-year strategy, which will immunise 300 million children and save up to 8 million lives by 2025, and for Gavi’s vital work to strengthen health systems around the world and help to tackle coronavirus in some of the world’s poorest countries. This will help stop future waves of infection spreading globally, including coming to the UK.

The UK government and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, are working with partners to finalise plans for the Summit programme and format, which will be shared with partners in due course.
