American President Joe Biden, ahead of the ‘Group of Seven’ meeting in the United Kingdom, has officially said that his government is going to share five-hundred million Pfizer vaccine doses for ninety-two low- and middle-income nations.

On Thursday, in Cornwall, the president described that these half a billion Coronavirus vaccines will begin to be donated in August, as soon as they roll off the manufacturing line. Biden continued that two hundred million vaccine doses would be shipped by the end of this year and the other three hundred doses at the start of 2022.

 President described the vaccine delivery will be made without any strings attached. He said that their coronavirus vaccine donations do not include pressure for potential concessions or favors. Moreover, they are performing this action to save lives and to end this pandemic.

The chief executive officer of Pfizer, Albert Bourla, made an appearance with Joe Biden for the donation announcement. Bourla described that they are testing their vaccine’s reaction to freshly emerging variants.

 With a promise, America even intends to free itself from the uncomfortable and disgraceful reputation of being a COVID-19 vaccine collector.

The action was an indication that America is not as very ‘parochial and inward-focused.’ The director of the American and Americas program at Chatham House, Leslie Vinjamuri, said that it has been an intense concern across the world, not only in the Trump era but also throughout the starting months of the Joe Biden administration as Washington wasn’t donating vaccine doses despite a huge oversupply.

Joe Biden’s statement appeared a day ahead of the ‘Group of Seven’ or G-7 conference, a summit of the world’s highly advanced nations. American President described that tomorrow, Group of Seven countries is going to be announcing the whole scope of their commitment.

The U.S. paid $2 billion to COVAX

The vaccine shots, shipped by America via COVAX (the United Nations vaccine-donating process), are in addition to the eighty million that had already pledged by the United States to be shipped by late June. Besides this, the United States has paid two billion dollars to COVAX.

America firstly promised an extra two billion dollars for COVAX, but now it is sending the payment for the five hundred million vaccine doses, which has valued at around 3.5 billion dollars.

Humanitarian organizations admired the action. The acting CEO at the ONE Campaign, Tom Hart, emphasized other allies of the G-7 to do the same. In a statement, he said that this move delivers an extremely powerful message about the United States’ pledge to helping the world fight against the Coronavirus pandemic and the massive power of America’s global leadership.
