The United States works with international partners to donate COVID-19 vaccines to the world and end the pandemic.

America’s support for the global fight against COVID-19 includes:

  • Donating over 622 million vaccine doses to other countries.
  • Contributing $4 billion to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, in support of COVAX, the global initiative to equitably distribute safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines worldwide.
  • Delivering essential medicines, supplies and therapeutics, as well as other assistance to help countries rebuild economies, overcome food shortages and strengthen health security.

“The United States will be the world’s arsenal of vaccines in our shared fight against this virus,” President Biden said in a June 3, 2021, statement. “We will continue to do all we can to build a world that is safer and more secure against the threat of infectious disease.”
