VOV.VN - COVAX delivered an additional 1,999,530 life-saving doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine made available by the United States to assist Vietnam in its fight against COVID-19.

These vaccine doses were delivered by COVAX directly from the Pfizer manufacturing plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

A total of 1,209,780 doses arrived in two deliveries to Ho Chi Minh City on October 7 and October 8 and a total of 789,750 doses arrived in two deliveries to Hanoi on October 8 and October 13.

This follows four previous COVAX deliveries to Vietnam totaling 7.5 million vaccine doses made available by the United States, bringing the total to 9.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses so far, and more is planned.

The United States and Vietnam continue to build on our longstanding cooperation with nearly US$1 billion US government investment in Vietnam’s health infrastructure to strengthen Vietnam’s capacity to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the United States has committed more than US$26.7 million in COVID-19 related assistance to Vietnam since the start of the pandemic.

At the Global COVID-19 Summit on September 22, the US President announced a commitment to provide an additional 500 million Pfizer doses, bringing the US total commitment to more than 1.1 billion doses.

Worldwide, the United States has provided more than 175 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to more than 100 countries.
