Coronavirus: US government donates 336,000 Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccines to Mozambique

Our two governments have collaborated in various ways to fight COVID-19 in Mozambique

MAPUTO, Mozambique, September 24, 2021 / APO Group / –

Today, at Maputo’s Mavalane International Airport, the United States government donated 336,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to the Mozambican Ministry of Health. Because the vaccine confers immunity in a single dose, this shipment will provide immunity to 336,000 Mozambicans, protecting the health of Mozambicans and preventing the spread of new dangerous variants. Because Johnson & Johnson vaccines are less expensive to store than other vaccines, they are easier to distribute.

US Ambassador Dennis W. Hearne said: “As the largest bilateral vaccine donor to Mozambique, the United States is pleased to be part of this coordinated global effort to provide vital support to the Mozambican people. Our two governments have worked together in various ways to fight COVID-19 in Mozambique. These vaccines will fill an important need for successful control of the virus. “

This is the second delivery of the COVID-19 vaccine. In July, the United States donated 302,400 Johnson and Johnson vaccines. This assistance is another example of the strength of the relationship between the United States and Mozambique, building on decades of health cooperation between Mozambique and the United States. The U.S. government has provided early and ongoing support for Mozambique’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including assistance valued at $ 62.5 million. This aid includes 50 ventilators donated to the Mozambican Ministry of Health in 2020, personal protective equipment for health workers, laboratory and oxygen equipment, training and funding for the increase in medical staff, between other initiatives.

The United States is committed to leading the global response to COVID-19 because it is the right thing to do and it will make the world a safer place. The US government has committed $ 4 billion to the COVAX facility, becoming the largest donor to the global effort to immunize people around the world. The US government has also purchased a billion vaccines for low-income countries and donated 80 million vaccines from the US supply.

Working closely with the government of the Republic of Mozambique, the U.S. government provides more than $ 500 million in annual assistance to improve the quality of education and health care, promote economic prosperity, and support the overall development of the nation.
