BREAKING: US will share 60 million AstraZeneca vaccines with world

The U.S. will begin sharing its entire pipeline of vaccines from AstraZeneca once the vaccine clear federal safety reviews, the White House said, with as many as 60 million doses expected to be available for export in the coming months.

The move greatly expands on the Biden administration’s action last month to share about 4 million doses of the vaccine with Mexico and Canada. The AstraZeneca vaccine is widely in use around the world but not yet authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The move comes as the White House is increasingly assured about the supply of the three vaccines being administered in the U.S., particularly following the restart of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson shot over the weekend.

“Given the strong portfolio of vaccines that the U.S. already has and that have been authorized by the FDA, and given that the AstraZeneca vaccine is not authorized for use in the U.S., we do not need to use the AstraZeneca vaccine here during the next several months,” said White House COVID-19 co-ordinator Jeff Zients.

“Therefore the U.S. is looking at options to share the AstraZeneca doses with other countries as they become available.”

  1. And they want to condemn and criticize the actions from our PM.
    it shows who has vision and who doesn’t.
    Kodus to my Prime Minister. You’re always far ahead of these UPP backward thinkers.

    • FROM THE SIDELINE as usual perhaps I sound like a broken record saying to this, but it is amazing how you guys shower praises on Gaston Browne for nothing. If he is so great as you say and is dubbed the World Boss by many of you, then why the hell he cannot use his greatness and influence to get America to honour the WTO judgment that we won against them. When he achieves that then perhaps you will be justified in showering him with a little praise. For now stop blowing every damn little thing out of proportion.

  2. Haha y’all so stupid .. America giving the vaccine to other countries but not using it for themselves. They are keeping the good vaccine and giving the poor countries what’s not good.

    • The US has to take care of its own first. After it has taking care of its citizens you will see that it will give the other vaccines to other countries.
      Also, not that the US bough the 60 000 000 vaccines from the manufacturer. Now multiply that buy the cast for each dose. Just be thankful if Antigua get some.

      I am sure when your neighbor kids come over to play your your kids and you are sharing apples, you gave the best ones to your kids.

    • The only vaccines that are approved by the FDA’ are all made in the USA. This is just politics . The best vaccine international is the Astrazenica

  3. Share….hmmmm…..I want to use the word dump.
    How come they don’t want to share the other two?
    History has a way of repeating itself. The Bahamas, Haiti, and Puerto Rico have stories that they can share regarding how “generous” mainland USA is.

    • The 3 vaccines approved by the FDA were all made in the USA by US companies. That doesn’t make them better

  4. Lol U really think his letter had such an effect to change U.S. policy ?
    What exactly should he get credit for . So many countries stopped using that vaccine and U.S. won’t approve it .

  5. The shelf life of what they have in stock is probably nearing their expiration date and as they are yet to be approved the “humane” thing is to give them away rather than them being dumped upon expiration.

    • @just saying. Spot On.
      Politricks. The OPTICS for dumping expired vaccines versus ‘generously donating’.
      From a country that has been me me me and not shared a drop of vaccine up to this point.

  7. On deeper reading it appears the AstraZeneca manufacturing plant in Baltimore, USA has had to dump massive quantities of Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccine as the plant was contaminated.
    FDA has not yet approved the release of the 10m AstraZeneca vaccines that are ready to ship to India as they are investigating this contamination in Baltimore USA.

    The other 50m doses are in various stages of production in USA, yet to be approved and not yet ready to ship.

    From this I deduce a nice feel-good sound-bite headline with less clarity, & possibly less than philanthropic intent, behind the words.
