US donates 17 million additional doses of COVID-19 vaccine to African Union

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Biden mentioned the donation during a bilateral press conference with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta in the Oval Office on Thursday. “We’re continuing our shared fight against COVID,” said Biden. “The United States has donated 2.8 million doses of vaccine to Kenya as part of a 50 million doses we’ve donated to the African Union.

The African Union, whose states comprise more than 1.3 billion people, has alleged that manufacturers are not giving its member states adequate access to vaccines. Only 2% of the approximately 5.7 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines given to people around the world have been in Africa. The doses will “help close the vaccine equity gap,” the White House said in a statement.

The Biden administration has dispatched tens of millions of vaccine doses to other countries through the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access (COVAX), which is a worldwide initiative aimed at equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines.
