US donates 3 vaccines for every shot used at home - Biden

United States President Joe Biden stated during his opening remarks of the Global COVID-19 Summit on Wednesday that as a leader in vaccine donations to the less fortunate countries America has committed to giving away three shots per every jab administered within the US.

Biden announced an additional purchase of 500 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine from Pfizer to be given to the global community bringing the total number of donated shots to 1.1 billion.

The American leader also revealed the launch of a partnership between the US and the European Union, aimed at expanding global vaccinations through the COVAX program. Biden urged for the shots to be donated, rather than sold to low-income countries, with no political strings attached.
