WHO Chief: Barriers to Vaccination Goal are 'Politics and Profit'
"A report in The Washington Post says Americans living abroad are struggling to receive COVID vaccines, while many of their U.S. counterparts are starting to receive booster shots after receiving their first two vaccine doses.
Marylouise Serrato, executive director of American Citizens Abroad, told the Post, 'You have Americans who are filing and paying taxes, and a promise by the administration that all Americans will get vaccinated, and yet that whole community has been left out of the equation.'
The White House 'has insisted that it has no special responsibility to vaccinate Americans abroad,' the Post reported. At least 9 million Americans are living overseas, the report added."
