COVID-19: Global Vaccine Challenge

OVERVIEW

Who has access to COVID-19 vaccines and why? In this virtual experience, we will take a global view at ending the pandemic. Much of the world only has access to vaccines through the international vaccine access organization COVAX. In this conversation, students will roleplay as youth advisors to COVAX, discussing their recommendations to make sure the whole world has access.

WHAT TO EXPECT
This presentation works best if each student is utilizing their own device so we can utilize online polls, the chat feature, and other digital tools. However, we are happy to work with you in whatever classroom environment you are in.

This virtual experience uses a shared screen presentation to present the challenges that are related to COVID-19 vaccine delivery around the globe and shifts into a student-centered discussion focusing on what might be some of the best ways to ensure the global distribution of vaccines. Students get to choose an area of discussion and are encouraged to share out loud and use the chat feature if on their individual devices.
