Petition to Lower the Price of Pneumonia Vaccine

Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) are the only two producers of the life-saving pneumonia vaccine. A lot have been saved by this vaccine, however, pneumonia still kills nearly 1 million children yearly (according to the A FAIR SHOT team).

I recently have signed a petition, together with the members of Mommy Bloggers Philippines, to help get these two pharmaceutical giants to reduce the price of a life-saving vaccine that currently remained priced out of reach for millions of children in developing counties, like ours.

If you want to stand up and take action to push for a more affordable pneumonia vaccine, help us reach the goal of half a million signatures by signing in this PETITION.
