India is among beneficiaries receiving 25 million vaccines from US

39;Get a shot and have a beer': Biden woos Americans with incentives for vaccine

Biden's statement reminded that his administration supports efforts to temporarily waive intellectual property rights for COVID-19 vaccines and that the us has already shared more than 4 million doses of vaccine with Canada and Mexico. This is part of the 80 million, or 8 crore, doses that US President Joe Biden has promised to share with the rest of the world.

The United States earlier pledged to provide up to 80 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines, including 20 million doses that have already been approved for use in the United States.

The first shipment of 25 million doses will include Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.

"Canada has ordered more doses per capita (more than 10) than any other country and therefore has a responsibility to share with the world", the groups said.

In addition to the Biden administration's plans to begin sharing doses it bought, Pfizer and Moderna have both begun filling worldwide orders from US plants that previously supplied only the USA government.

"As long as this pandemic is raging anywhere in the world, the American people will still be vulnerable", Biden said in a statement.

The much-anticipated vaccine sharing plan becomes a reality just as the desire for vaccines begins to wane in the United States among those who are eligible.

Some state officials have said in recent days that some unused doses may expire by the end of the month, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday that looming expiration dates were a factor as the administration works to get the doses sent out as quickly as possible.

"At least 75% of these doses - almost 19 million [1.9 core] - will be shared through COVAX, including approximately 6 million [60 lakh] doses for Latin America and the Caribbean, approximately 7 million [70 lakh] for South and Southeast Asia, and approximately 5 million [50 lakh] for Africa, working in coordination with the African Union and the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention".

But what she might not have anticipated was that those fines would be just the tip of the iceberg. And that was that from a player who has now strung together 15 successive Grand Slam match wins.

"And the United States is committed to bringing the same urgency to global vaccination efforts that we have demonstrated at home".

SII, the world's largest vaccine maker and a top supplier of COVID-19 shots to low- and middle-income countries, had criticized the use of the DPA, and Reuters reported in May that a shortage of USA -made raw materials would hit production of Novavax's vaccine.

They discussed ongoing efforts to strengthen the health supply chain between the two countries, including in vaccine manufacturing, and the potential of the India-U.S. partnership as well as the Quad vaccine initiative in addressing the pandemic's long-term health impact, according to a readout from Modi's office. White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients said that 1 million Johnson & Johnson doses were being shipped to South Korea Thursday.

Many Latin American countries have a dire need for vaccines as they combat outbreaks.

However, Tom Hart the acting CEO of The ONE Campaign, said that while Thursday's announcement was a "welcome step, the Biden administration needs to commit to sharing more doses". We first made doses available to our closest neighbors - Canada and Mexico.

He emphasized Biden's point that the U.S.is not "extorting or asking concessions or imposing conditions", and included an apparent slight, "the way other countries who are providing doses are doing".

Mexico's President Lopez Obrador said via Twitter that VP Harris had informed him of the White House decision to send one million shots of the J & J vaccine.

As of now, the federal government has hundreds of millions of doses - of both authorized and in-development vaccines - on order. Pfizer and Moderna are only now starting to export vaccines produced in the U.S.to overseas customers.
