1. While laudable, that would be enough to fully vaccinate about 3.5% of the world population.

According to the Washington Post, it would cost about 66 billion to vaccinate the world. If we divide that among the G7 countries that would amount to 10 billion per country. In the world of defense spending thatís a rounding error. Whatís more, it would actually make us safer.
