Biden administration announces allocation plan for COVID-19 vaccines – 14M for Latin America and the Caribbean

The Biden-Harris Administration announced the distribution list for 55 million of the 80 million doses of America’s own vaccine supply President Biden has pledged to allocate by the end of June in service of ending the pandemic globally.

In  release issued this evening, Monday June 21 via the T&T U.S Embassy’s Facebook page, President Joe Biden has promised that the United States will be an arsenal of vaccines for the world.

Part of that plan is donating vaccine from our domestic supply, and Biden has pledged 80 million doses to be allocated by the end of June. Earlier this month, the Administration announced the plan for the first 25 million doses that we have begun shipping, and today’s announcement completes the list for the remaining 55 million doses.

For all of these doses, those most at risk, such as health care workers, should be prioritized, based on national vaccine plans.

Approximately 41 million will be shared through COVAX, with the following allocations:

– 14 million for Latin America and the Caribbean to the following: Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Paraguay, Bolivia,        Uruguay, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, and other Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries, Dominican Republic, Panama, and Costa Rica.
