U.S. to Donate 500M Doses of Pfizer COVID Vaccine Worldwide

The U.S. has purchased 500 million doses of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine to distribute to countries around the world.

President Biden, who announced the plan Thursday at the Group of Seven summit at Cornwall, United Kingdom, said the donations will come with “no strings attached.”

“From the beginning of my presidency we’ve been clear eyed that we need to attack this virus globally,” Biden said, NBC News reported. “We value the inherent dignity of all people. In times of trouble, Americans reach out to offer a helping hand.”

Biden’s leading coronavirus adviser Jeff Zients has been working on the project for the past month, a source told CNN. About 200 million doses will go out in 2021 and 300 million will be given out in the first half of 2022.

All doses will go through COVAX, the international vaccine initiative, and will go to 92 low and lower-income countries, in addition to the African Union.
