The United States is dedicated to spearheading the worldwide response to the COVID-19 pandemic, amassing a global arsenal of vaccinations, and assisting all nations in their recovery efforts.
Moreover, the United States is re-engaging with the World Health Organization, bolstering vaccine confidence, and supporting the worldwide distribution of safe and effective vaccines via COVAX.
It is also developing international vaccine manufacturing capabilities and revamping the Global Health Security Architecture.
President Biden stated on June 10 that the United States will acquire and provide 500 million doses of Pfizer vaccines through COVAX to 92 low and middle-income countries and African Union.
