LIBREVILLE, Gabon, September 24, 2021 / Groupe APO / –

The U.S. Embassy in Libreville announces the U.S. government donation of 100,620 doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine as part of the administration’s global efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The United States has already donated more than 160 million doses of its national supply to more than 100 countries. The United States government has coordinated closely with the African Union and the African Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on country allocations. The vaccine doses arrived via COVAX last night.

The vaccines will help protect the Gabonese people from the ravages of the COVID-19 virus and reduce obstacles to rebuilding the Gabonese economy. “These vaccines represent hope for a better future, and we are proud to continue to work with the Gabonese government, the private sector and civil society to do all we can to alleviate the heavy toll of the pandemic on lives and livelihoods, and its social impacts. “, Noted Interim Chargé d’affaires, Christopher Tremann. “I urge each of you to get vaccinated as soon as possible – as I did – and to stay alert; thanks to vaccination, we protect ourselves, we protect each other and the most vulnerable among us.

These 100,620 doses are part of the Biden-Harris administration’s commitment to share America’s vaccine supply with the world. As we continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic at home and work to end the pandemic globally, President Biden has vowed that the United States will be a vaccine arsenal for the world.

As President Biden said,

“Since the start of my presidency, we have been clear that we must also attack this virus on a global scale. It is about our responsibility – our humanitarian obligation to save as many lives as possible – and our responsibility to our values. We will help pull the world out of this pandemic, working alongside our global partners. “
