US to buy 500 million doses of Pfizer vaccine to be shared globally

Washington: The US will buy 500 million doses of Pfizer's vaccine through the global Covax alliance to donate the anti-Covid vaccine to 92 low-income countries and the African Union next year. A person with knowledge of the matter has given this information. The person said that President Joe Biden will make an announcement on Thursday in a speech before the start of the Group Seven summit. 

200 million doses of the vaccine will be donated this year while the remaining doses will be donated during the first six months of 2022. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters on Wednesday that Biden is committed to sharing the vaccine because it is in America's public health and strategic interest. 

The US has faced pressure to outline a global plan for vaccine sharing. In all, the White House has announced a worldwide sharing of 80 million doses by the end of June, most of which will be given through Covax.
