The U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa, Honduras is pleased to announce a donation from the government of the United States of 250,000 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to the people of Honduras. The vaccine doses arrived in the Honduran capital on October 4 2021.
This new donation is in addition to the 81,900 doses of Pfizer vaccines donated to Honduras on October 1, which also came from the United States via the COVAX mechanism. 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 nearly 3.5 million vaccine 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.
