The U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa, Honduras is pleased to announce another donation from the government of the United States of 81,900 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to the people of Honduras through COVAX. The vaccine doses are arriving in the Honduran capital on October 1, 2021. This additional donation of vaccine doses is part of the global effort of the Biden-Harris Administration to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, the United States has donated 3.2 million doses to Honduras through the COVAX mechanism.
This donation is a continuation of our support to the Honduran people and will help them focus on economic recovery. It is part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to share vaccines with the world. President Biden has promised the United States will provide 1.1 billion vaccine doses through 2022 in the fight against COVID-19.
While convening the Global COVID Summit on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, President Biden announced the United States will provide an additional 500 million Pfizer doses within one year, bringing the total vaccine doses the United States is making available globally to more than 1.1 billion. The distribution of these doses supports the WHO goal of vaccinating 70 percent of the population of all countries in the next year.
