QCOSTARICA – The United States presented on Monday a plan to share 55 million doses of coronavirus vaccines worldwide, with approximately 75% of the doses allocated to Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia and Africa.
More than 40 million doses will be distributed, in countries considered “regional priorities”.
“Of the 80 million promised by Biden, 25 began to be delivered earlier this month, and another 55 million remains to be allocated, which will be distributed” as quickly as possible,” said Jen Psaki, a spokeswoman for the White House.
The plan fulfills President Joe Biden’s commitment to share 80 million American-made vaccines with countries around the world.
For their part, through direct distribution, the recipient nations will be Colombia, Argentina, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Panama, among others.
How many doses each of those countries will receive is yet unknown.
