The Biden-Harris administration announced on Monday that 55 million doses of the vaccine will be shared globally. These vaccines are the remaining portion of the 80 million doses that President Biden plans to donate to 92 countries by the end of June.
The Biden administration is prioritizing the manufacturing of vaccines in the US to send to low-income countries. This resulted in the plan to purchase half a billion Pfizer vaccines to donate to 92 countries across the world. With this agreement, G7+ has agreed to provide one billion vaccines on top of the half a billion Pfizer vaccines purchased.
With the 80 million doses that Biden will donate, 75% will be through COVAX, and 25% will be targeted to countries dealing with COVID-19 surges.
Here is a list of countries that will be receiving the donated vaccines
— 14 million vaccines will be shared with Latin America and the Caribbean.
— 14 million vaccines will be shared with regional priorities such as the Dominican Republic, Columbia, Argentina, Haiti, Costa Rica, and more.
—16 million vaccines will be shared in Asia.
—10 million vaccines will be shared with Africa.
In addition to a large number of purchased vaccines, one billion doses will begin production in both Africa and India in 2021-2022. With the help of the International Development Finance Corporation, we are now able to start vaccine manufacturing in countries that are dealing with the most surges.
The Biden administration plans to continue providing the COVID resources available to help other countries. By doing so, barriers will continue to be broken in hopes to spread vaccine immunity.
