Biden: U.S. Ready to Provide COVID-19 Vaccines to Other Countries

President says this after announcing that 200 million doses of vaccines have been administered in the U.S.

WASHINGTON – The United States is working to supply other countries with much-needed vaccines against the coronavirus, President Joe Biden told White House reporters.

After a speech in which the president announced that 200 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the United States, he was asked about helping other countries.

“We’re in the process of doing that and we’ve already done some things along those lines,” Biden replied. – We’re looking at what we can do with some of the vaccines that we don’t use. We want to make sure they’re safe to ship, and hopefully, we can provide some assistance to countries around the world.”

The president said he discussed the issue for about half an hour in a phone call with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday.

“We’ve provided a little help there. We’re trying to help some more,” Biden said. – But there are other countries that I’m sure we can help, including in Central America.”
