The United States announced its intention to distribute 80 million doses of coronavirus vaccine to a number of countries by the end of June. The plan for the distribution of the first 25 million doses of vaccines was provided by the press service of the White House.
At least 75 percent of these doses—nearly 19 million—will be shared through COVAX, including approximately 6 million doses for Latin America and the Caribbean, approximately 7 million for South and Southeast Asia, and approximately 5 million for Africa, working in coordination with the African Union and the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.
The remaining doses, just over 6 million, will be shared directly with countries experiencing surges, those in crisis, and other partners and neighbors, including Canada, Mexico, India, and the Republic of Korea.
"We are sharing these doses not to secure favors or extract concessions. We are sharing these vaccines to save lives and to lead the world in bringing an end to the pandemic, with the power of our example and with our values," US President Joe Biden said.
As we reported earlier, in Poland, on May 2, a daily record of coronavirus vaccinations was set - more than 620,000 vaccinations. The head of the Office of the Prime Minister of Poland Michał Dworczyk announced this on Twitter.
"Yesterday we conducted more than 620,000 vaccinations, that is an absolute record and proof that the system has achieved the expected efficiency," he wrote.
