JAKARTA -- Leaders of the world's 20 biggest economies said they will "spare no effort" to ensure affordable and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines for all people, as they concluded a two-day virtual meeting.

The pledge comes as global concerns mount over whether vaccines will only be available for the rich and powerful, with those on the lower rungs of the income ladder unable to gain access.
