Success: COVID-19 Vaccine Remains Cost-Free

Target: Stephane Bancel, CEO of Moderna Therapeutics

Goal: Support decision to keep COVID-19 vaccine free for all.

Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine has enjoyed both financial and medical success. It is considered by many to be the most effective vaccine for this illness in the world, and it has netted the company that created it billions of dollars in profits. When word began to circulate that Moderna would implement a dramatic price increase on the vaccine that would potentially put it out of reach for millions of Americans, backlash resulted. This ForceChange petition and its signees called on the major conglomerate to reconsider. And they have listened.

“Everyone in the United States will have access to Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine regardless of their ability to pay,” the company announced in a statement. To clarify, the Moderna vaccine will remain free to anyone who needs it, including uninsured individuals. This stance breaks with competing vaccine manufacturers, who have publicly announced price increases as well as potential out-of-pocket costs for consumers after the conclusion of the national public health emergency declaration.

Sign the petition below to thank this pharmaceutical giant for putting people and public health over profits.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Bancel,

“Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines will continue to be available at no cost for insured people whether they receive them at their doctors’ offices or local pharmacies. For uninsured or underinsured people, Moderna’s patient assistance program will provide COVID-19 vaccines at no cost.” This company statement put to rest the fears of many individuals that they would no longer be able to protect themselves against this still-dangerous disease.

Thank you for weighing this decision and emerging on the side of the people. And thank you for helping develop and distribute a vaccine that has been such a crucial instrument in fighting this once-in-a-century pandemic.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I hope you saw the statement that the company has gained MILLIONS of dollars from their vaccine. Although the vaccine was free, the government paid for it, which means, YOU paid for it. Nothing is FREE! The Covid vaccines were not tested properly, but we paid the price ( both financially and medically). Don’t ignore the threats that come with this so called vaccine. I know people who have suffered complications from it such as Bell’s Palsy and heart conditions. Healthy young men have died from heart problems after the first or second dose of it. Research before you accept this experimental genetic changing drug.
