You got one! Now give one!
Those of us who are fully protected are relieved and grateful. We can give that peace of mind to another by supporting the cost of a vaccine.
With this simple act of solidarity, we can expand protection against COVID-19 and end the pandemic faster.
Our compassion can spread faster than the virus.
No one is safe until everyone is safe
The science is clear: to finally, fully defeat the COVID-19 virus, humanity must achieve herd immunity as quickly as possible.
The virus will continue to spread and mutate, leading to more outbreaks and more dangerous variants until most human beings across the globe have been vaccinated.
Humanity is in a race against time. Your contribution can help us win.
Show the world you care
After a year of lockdowns and losses, we have re-discovered the importance of family, human connection, security, and compassion.
Make a contribution and encourage everyone you know to do the same.
Speed the spread of vaccines for all.
Your contributions will go to COVAX-AMC, the global mechanism created to buy and distribute vaccines to 92 lower-income countries.
COVAX-AMC will spend all the money you contribute on vaccines for lower-income countries. Your funds will not pay for overhead costs.
Get1Give1 Worldwide is an independent group of volunteers who pay for all our own administrative costs. About us.

Statement one year on
When we started Get1Give1 Worldwide, 30% of people in high-income countries had received at least one vaccine compared to 0.5% in low-income countries. Our donors have been generous. Yet one year later, vaccine equity is a distant goal.
Getting it right for the next one
What went wrong and what has to happen to ensure a fairer response to the next pandemic or a more deadly variant of COVID-19?
Our requests of the global community
- COVAX must be automatically funded and inclusively governed
- Contracts with pharmaceutical companies must be transparent and prices and licenses affordable
- Research and manufacturing hubs should be established in under-served regions
- Investments are urgently needed in public health delivery systems in lower-income countries
Reimagining the future
When we started Get1Give1 Worldwide, we were searching for a citizen-to-citizen response to COVID-19 that allowed us to demonstrate our solidarity with the rest of the world in a direct and tangible way.
As COVID-fatigue settles in, we believe the citizen solidarity most needed will be for all of us to: demand our governments agree to abide by a common set of rules that will protect humanity from the urgent, existential challenges we face.
