Why should the UK donate vaccines to poor countries?

We bought them and may need them. If we have a surplus then other countries that want them should pay for them.

    The more people have the vaccine globally the sooner it can be controlled and the sooner society can open up.

    You are very short-sighted and mean-spirited.

    Once the UK has been Inoculated that will be OK as Long as the Cost is part of our Foreign Aid programme

    if we Give 10,000,000 to a country and the Vaccine is worth 2 Million then we reduce the cash amount by 2 Million

    We don’t even know if we have a surplus. We need about 120 million jabs ( 2 per person, 90% take up). We gave ORDERED 400 million does across the various types, but Idon’t know how many we actually have. Also if one variety shows up a serious problem we don’t want all our eggs in one basket. 

    As long as we give the excess to third world countries and not the EU who should have organised their own better, that’s fine with me.

    If we have a surplus, it is both gracious and sensible to donate vaccines to poorer countries. We want everyone to be immune, don't we, not just ourselves.

    If there's an excess of dated vaccines that aren't being used on the native population I can't think of a reason they shouldn't be donated to those in need.

    Given that diseases ARE refused entry? Boris comes to mind. With all his worldly hobnobing.

    Aside from the blowback, in mutations which obviously WILL observe borders, and hence be BARRED entry into U.K.?

    Plus no such thing as 100% no side effects for 100% of the people given it!

    Imagine the scenario, a country has rampant disease! No drugs. Only the hardly survive! 

    Incidentally those countries suffering the most are the future, of trade.  The sun is setting on the American empire! And the old declining order knows it.

    Besides Russia and China ARE supplying vaccines!

    When it comes to future trade.

    Imagine! Who wins kudos? Those who helped? Or those who horded and strutted about like a peacock!
