Today, US President Joe Biden announced that he will send at least 20 million vaccine doses to prevent Covid-19 to other countries by the end of June, for the first time that the United States has participated in vaccines authorized for domestic use..
Biden said he would send Pfizer / Biontic, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson vaccines, in addition to 60 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, which he was already planning to send to other countries..
Unlike other vaccines, AstraZeneca has not yet been licensed for use in the United States.
