‘Vax Live’ Concert Helps Mobilize Over 26 Million COVID-19 Vaccine Doses
The VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World campaign helped mobilize over 26 million COVID-19 vaccine doses and $302 million to provide equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines, tests, treatments and other medical tools to the world’s most marginalized communities and healthcare workers on the frontlines.
The event was held at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, for a COVID 19-compliant audience composed of fully-vaccinated frontline healthcare and essential workers and is the first large-scale music event held at the stadium.
Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Vedder, Foo Fighters, J Balvin and H.E.R. performed at the event, hosted by Selena Gomez.
Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, served as Campaign Chairs.
President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris along with Ben Affleck, Chrissy Teigen, Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Penn made special appearances.
The VAX LIVE campaign called on governments to begin sharing vaccine doses immediately and for pharmaceutical companies such as Moderna to urgently provide millions of doses to the poorest nations at cost pricing.
