Coronavirus – Angola: USG shares 464,090 additional doses of Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine with Angola

The United States has delivered more than 110 million doses of vaccine to more than 60 countries, and will continue to share vaccine doses as supplies become available

LUANDA, Angola, September 27, 2021 / APO Group / –

The U.S. Embassy in Luanda, Angola is pleased to announce the arrival of 464,090 doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine that the United States is sharing with Angola through COVAX. We share these doses so as not to obtain favors or obtain concessions. Our vaccines do not come with conditions. We do this with the sole aim of saving lives.

This third batch brings to 1,646,960 the total number of doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine supplied to Angola by the United States (the first and second arrived on August 24 and 26). The batch arrived at the international airport 4 of Fevereiro de Luanda, via COVAX, today September 26 at 12:35, this total donation of vaccines will be the largest of a single country in Angola to fight against the pandemic of COVID-19.

To date, the United States has delivered more than 110 million doses of vaccine to more than 60 countries, and it will continue to share vaccine doses as supplies become available. The United States will purchase and donate an additional 500 million doses of Pfizer vaccine for distribution by COVAX through 2022, on top of the 500 million doses of Pfizer vaccine we committed in June. This brings our total to over a billion doses donated worldwide. The pledge to provide Pfizer’s additional 500 million vaccines will continue to fulfill US President Biden’s pledge to step up the fight against the global pandemic.

As President Biden said, “The United States is determined to bring the same urgency to international immunization efforts that we have demonstrated at home. We are sharing these vaccines to save lives and lead the world to end the pandemic. “

We look forward to continuing coordination with the African Union and African CDCs to distribute these doses across the continent through the COVAX initiative through their established logistics channels.
