Administrator Samantha Power at the Vaccine Global Health Security Session of the G7 Foreign and Development Ministerial Meeting

Sunday, December 12, 2021

It’s great to join you from Washington D.C., early in the morning, to discuss a battle against COVID that could not be more urgent. I want to begin by applauding South Africa for the timely identification and for reporting on the Omicron variant, having heard of course Chairman Faki’s comments on that as well.  The Omicron variant clearly demonstrates, as Delta did before, that if anyone is at risk of COVID, we are all at risk, reminding us why it is so important to fulfill our commitments around the world. As vaccine campaigns began in each of our countries, the G-7 outlined commitments to support more equitable global access to vaccines.
