Corporate Citizenship Watch: Focus on the Vaccine - The Role of Business in Supporting Government in the Vaccine Distribution

FEBRUARY 09, 2021


The development of a coronavirus vaccine is an incredible feat by the global medical community, offering a moment of optimism for many. Yet, in the U.S., the total number of vaccines administered to-date is still far below the federal government's initial goal of inoculating 20 million Americans by the end of 2020. Vaccine distribution at a mass scale will require integration and collaboration across state, national, international, and global entities. This mass-scale distribution must also focus on equitable distribution, ensuring that high-risk populations and essential workers have priority access. Then, there's the challenge of addressing the skepticism and hesitancy among those unwilling to get vaccinated.
