Americans living abroad plead for COVID-19 vaccine
"Americans living abroad are pleading with the U.S. government to provide them with COVID-19 vaccine doses, particularly as demand is waning domestically with a majority of adults getting their shots.
Marylouise Serrato, executive director of American Citizens Abroad, said the federal government should try to distribute vaccines to as many of its citizens as possible to help halt the pandemic.
'Given the situation, this just isn't about health care,' she said. 'It's about fairness and accessibility, and we believe that it's an opportunity for the U.S. government to do the right thing for all its citizens, including those that are living overseas.'"
