COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution
As President Biden has said, “the U.S. is committed to bringing the same urgency to international vaccination efforts that we have demonstrated at home.” We are proud to have delivered 151,200 COVID-19 vaccine doses to Burkina Faso on July 20, working closely with Gavi and the African Union.
As part of our pledge to provide 25 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to African Union member states, the United States is pleased to announce the delivery of an additional 151,200 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to Burkina Faso via Gavi, COVAX, and the AU on July 31.
The United States delivered 168,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine via COVAX to the people of Burkina Faso on November 12. The U.S. is committed to providing safe, effective, and free vaccines to support our African partners until COVID-19 is defeated.
