The United States will provide 500 million Pfizer vaccine shots to people all across the globe.
According to a report released on Wednesday, US Vice President Joe Biden’s administration would acquire 500 million doses of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine to give internationally.
According to the Washington Post, Biden will reveal the idea during the Group of Seven (G7) conference in Britain later this week, according to three individuals familiar with the arrangements.
Biden told reporters before leaving for the UK trip that he will have a global vaccination policy and will reveal it, but he did not elaborate.
According to an Associated Press report citing a source close to the situation, 200 million pills will be distributed this year.
Biden said last week that the US will give 75% of unused coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccinations to the United Nations’ COVAX global vaccine sharing program.
According to the White House, the administration revealed its framework for providing at least 80 million vaccine doses internationally by the end of June, as well as the strategy for the first 25 million doses.
By the end of 2021, COVAX hopes to have delivered 2 billion vaccination doses.
