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.
