Under the agreement, Mexico will receive 2.5 million doses of the vaccine, while Canada will receive 1.5 million.
According to a representative of the Biden administration:
The corona virus knows no bounds and can only be defeated if we work together with our global partners.
The government has been under pressure on several occasions from its allies in the past
Share your vaccines, especially AstraZeneca, which is already licensed in other countries, but not yet in the United States.
The drug maker is already in the U.S. Has produced millions of doses of the vaccine in factories, which could reach 30 million by April.
The current deal, which is still being finalized, will not affect Joe Biden’s earlier promise that all adults will receive adequate vaccination by the end of May. The official announcement will be received in a few more days.
Under the loan agreement, Mexico and Canada will then repay the vaccines along with the vaccines. No such deals have been planned with other countries so far, but it will be shared if there is a surplus, Joe Biden said.
