âAt Expedia Group, we are a group of passionate employees with a deep understanding of the power that travel has to broaden horizons and strengthen connections.
Right now, the most important barrier to all people being able to move freely around the world remains the lack of access to COVID-19 vaccines, âsaid Peter Kern, vice president and general manager of Expedia Group.
âWe support a global and equitable approach to vaccine distribution and embrace efforts to help protect everyone, everywhere.
We are proud to contribute to UNICEF and what will be the largest and fastest global vaccine deployment ever. I hope other companies, and all who can, will join us in accelerating vaccine deployment, tackling global inequalities, and igniting a movement that will help bring the world together. We all need to do our part to make the world truly open again. “
