January 26, 2022: The United States will donate an additional 1,737,450 doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to Côte d’Ivoire.  With this gift, the United States will have donated a total of 6,605,410 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to Côte d’Ivoire.  Approximately half of the latest U.S.-provided doses arrived safely in Abidjan through the COVAX mechanism on January 26, with the remainder expected for delivery on January 27.

“The United States is strongly commitment to supporting our Ivoirian partners’ efforts to mitigate the pandemic,” said Dr. Nancy Lowenthal, USAID Country Representative in Côte d’Ivoire.  “If you are eligible, please protect yourself and your loved ones by getting vaccinated.”

Safe and effective vaccines are our best tool to end the pandemic, and the United States has committed to purchasing and donating 1.2 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses worldwide. To date, the United States has delivered more than 385 million doses of vaccine to more than 110 countries. The commitment to provide COVID-19 vaccines to the world will continue to fulfill President Biden’s promise that the United States will be “an arsenal” in the global fight against the pandemic.
