United Kingdom to donate 100 million doses of COVID-19 to the world

Posted: Friday, June 11, 2021. 10:19 am CST.

By Zoila Palma: Today, United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced that the UK will donate 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines within the next year.

In the next few weeks, the UK will be donating 5 million vaccine doses.

The donation is in addition to the UK’s funding for COVAX and support for the development of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.

The G7 leaders are meeting at the G7 summit today in which it is expected that they will agree to provide 1 billion doses via dose sharing and financing to end the pandemic in 2022.

In addition, a statement from the UK Government said that 80% of the donation will go direct to COVAX and the remainder will be shared bilaterally with countries in need.

The sharing of the 5 million doses in the next few weeks will assist in meeting an immediate demand for vaccines for the countries worst affected by COVID-19.

“By vaccinating more people around the world not only will we help bring an end to the global coronavirus pandemic, we will reduce the risk to people in the UK. This includes significantly reducing the threat posed by vaccine-resistant variants emerging in areas with large-scale outbreaks,” a statement from the UK government said.
