Health Innovation Main Topic Out And About Patents Take Action

April 28: Free the Vaccine Protest


Join us this Wednesday, April 28th to pressure the Federal Government and Moderna to end the patent restrictions so that vaccines are more easily available abroad and to the global south. The Federal Government has spent billions to research and produce the COVID-19 vaccines. Corporations should not limit access to these vaccines, especially with patents. This event is the same day as the Moderna shareholder meeting.

This event is organized by Free the Vaccine – Boston, and we encourage you to attend. The plan is to meet at noon at Galaxy Park (next to the Kendall Square MBTA stop) and then walk to the Moderna HQ at 200 Technology Square. Be sure to wear a mask and social distance. Tell us you plan to attend so we know to look out for you!

We will bring signs for people to hold, but you can download and print out our sign templates. You can view and edit them in LibreOffice, which is Free Software.

Free the Vaccine – Boston also has a Facebook event should you want to tell them you are coming.

If you haven’t gotten vaccinated yet, checkout our blog post on how to do so.

Please tell us you plan to attend.
