The United States makes a new Donation of 1.5 million doses of vaccines against COVID-19 to Honduras

July 22, 2021

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.”
