The Rotary Club of Marlborough & District in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Cheltenham is supporting the Gavi/Covax initiative to provide Covid 19 vaccines to countries where cost is an issue. They are asking you to consider donating the cost of your vaccine to Gavi/Covax. The more funds Gavi receives, the more people in 92 lower-income economies will be protected against the virus.

Rotarian Gerry Hooper told Marlborough.news, “Many of us have had our first jab and are now getting the second one which will ‘fix’ high levels of antibodies to keep us safe and allow life to carefully get back to normal. Rotarians are helping with this vaccination effort in many places, including our local centres, and many have donated the cost of their jabs to a fund helping Covax to get these shots to poor countries, saving many, many lives. If many people donate a small amount to the Rotary fund we will help to save lives across the world. Anything helps, from £1 up to £50 (roughly the average cost of several doses).”
The Rotary Club of Cheltenham is heading up this appeal. Visit the website here to donate and to find out more. Contributions will be used by Covax (the international vaccine alliance) to make sure the whole world is ‘jabbed’.
