President Joe Biden will pledge Monday to share 20 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine with other countries, bringing the total number of COVID-19 vaccines that the United States will share with the rest of the world to 80 million.
According to the White House, the federal government expects the doses to be delivered by “late June.”
The US had already announced in April that it would send some 60 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to other countries, which has not yet received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Federal authorities have not specified which countries will receive the AstraZeneca doses, although both Mexico and Canada are expected to receive vaccines.
