The United States Makes a New Donation of Nearly 89,000 Doses of Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine to Honduras

September 3, 2021

The U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa, Honduras is pleased to announce another donation from the government of the United States of nearly 89,000 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to the people of Honduras. These are arriving on multiple flights in the Honduran capital on September 3 and 9, 2021. This additional donation of vaccines is part of the global effort of the Biden-Harris Administration to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The donated vaccine doses will arrive through the COVAX mechanism.

This donation is a continuation of our support to the Honduran people and will help them eventually 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.

In June, President Biden announced that 500 million life-saving vaccines will be delivered to countries worldwide by mid-2022. This includes 200 million to be delivered by the end of 2021. The donation will serve as the foundation for a coordinated effort by the world’s democracies to vaccine people and defeat COVID-19.
