Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Thursday said vaccinations are the strongest stimulus that countries can provide to the world economy, in a letter to Group of 20 countries . "A rapid and truly global vaccination program is the strongest stimulus we can provide to the global economy," Yellen told her colleagues in the organization, which includes China and India.
