USA vs World Vaccines

Vaccines are just now becoming available to all age groups in the USA, and we’re well on track to getting enough people vaccinated by this Summer. In the rest of the world the pandemic grows much worse. China and Russia are doling their dubious vaccines out to desperate nations to curry foreign favor, without revealing the testing data and background research for their vaccines that appear to be less effective than the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in the USA. The AstraZeneca vaccine hasn’t been approved in America, but is the only choice in Europe, where health scares have led to bans and distrust. After an ugly year, the privileged USA is taking care of itself while the rest of the globe suffers, begging for vaccine scraps.

I thought about labeling the Jim Crow drinking fountains “USA” and “World” – maybe I should have since it isn’t a race disparity, rather it is the privileged compared to the needy; I’m still not sure that was a good editorial choice.

Here are some cartoons from the CagleCartoonists about the lousy vaccines the world is stuck with.
