WH: US to donate 500M vaccine doses globally

United States President Joe Biden will announce that the country is going to donate an additional 500 million doses of Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE's vaccine against COVID-19 to low- and lower-middle-income nations around the world, the White House stated on Wednesday.

The administration stressed that, with this contribution, the US will have donated over 1.1 billion doses globally. "The US has already shipped 160 million of these doses to 100 countries – more than every other nation combined has delivered," it added.

Biden previously announced a similar move back in June.
