The United States intends to transfer to other countries about 10% of Washington’s coronavirus vaccine doses by July 4. This was announced on Tuesday, May 4, by the President of the United States, Joe Biden. Video of the speech was published in Twitter White House.

According to the American leader, the United States has already sent the AstraZeneca vaccine to Canada and Mexico, and negotiations are underway with other countries.

“I’m not ready to announce who else we will give the vaccine to, but by July 4 we are going to send about 10% of what we have to other countries,” said the head of the Washington administration.

On April 21, the President of the United States announced that the country is considering helping other countries with the supply of vaccines against the coronavirus. We are talking about those drugs that are not used in the United States. At the same time, he noted that the States themselves do not yet have enough vaccines in order to poison them abroad.

On April 19, the US federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that vaccination against COVID-19 has become available to all residents of the country who have reached the age of 16.

In early March, the Biden administration reaffirmed the position of previous US authorities that the country does not plan to share coronavirus vaccines with other states until all Americans are vaccinated.
