The U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa, Honduras is pleased to announce another donation from the government of the United States of 1.5 million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to the people of Honduras. This second large donation of vaccines is part of the global effort of the Biden-Harris Administration to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The donated vaccine doses will arrive through the COVAX mechanism to the city of San Pedro Sula on Thursday, July 22.
This donation is a continuation of our support to the Honduran people so that they can return to normality and focus on economic recovery. It is part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to share its vaccines with the world, and President Biden’s promise that the United States will be the arsenal of vaccines in the global fight against COVID-19.
As President Biden said:
“This is a monumental commitment by the American people. As I said, we’re a nation full of people who step up at times of need to help our fellow human beings, both at home and abroad.”
