U.S., COVAX support COVID-19 vaccinations worldwide [video]

The United States is the largest contributor to COVAX, a global initiative to equitably distribute COVID-19 vaccines worldwide.

In March, the United States government contributed $2 billion in support of COVAX, but more funding is needed.

“People everywhere should have access to rigorously tested, safe, and effective COVID-19 vaccines,” Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken said. “The faster we do all this, the more lives we save, and the quicker our communities and economies can recover.”
