The United States is likely to distribute 200 million shots this year and another 300 million in the first half of next year to 92 lower-income countries and the African Union, they said.

The US has purchased and will donate 500 million doses of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine worldwide as it seeks to be a key player in getting other nations vaccinated, a person familiar with the move told CNN.

"We have to end COVID-19 not just at home - which we're doing - but everywhere", Biden said Wednesday in a speech to the USA military at Royal Air Force Mildenhall, the first stop of an eight-day, three-country foreign trip.

The news of the Pfizer sharing plan was confirmed to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of the president's formal announcement. "We have purchased from Sinopharm 100,000, doses of the Sinopharm vaccine", he said.

The Washington Post first reported the plan.

Overall, the White House has announced plans to share 80 million doses globally by the end of June, most through Covax.

The administration is also using the USA vaccine supply as a tool to counter Chinese and Russian vaccine diplomacy.

Anand says the federal government has so far delivered 31-million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to the provinces and territories. The program is led by the World Health Organization and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI).

"To be clear, that is the minimum number of doses were anticipate to receive within that timeframe".

"We have had limited supply, and in recent weeks we've been using more vaccine than has been entering the country". These groups are more likely to be exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 due to their occupations.
