Today, I’m announcing that the United States will donate half a billion new Pfizer vaccines to 92 low- and lower middle-income countries.
These Pfizer vaccines will save millions of lives around the world, and be produced through the power of American manufacturing.

Despite pledges to phase out fossil fuel subsidies, G7 countries spend at least $ 100B/year supporting fossil fuels:
🇺🇸 $ 27.4B
🇩🇪 $ 18.6B
🇮🇹 $ 17.9B
🇯🇵 $ 12.5B
🇬🇧 $ 11B
🇫🇷 $ 8B
🇨🇦 $ 4.7B
The U.S. spends the most & ranks LAST on progress in removing subsidies. We must do better.

82% of shots worldwide have been administered in high- and upper-middle-income countries. Only 0.3% have been administered in low-income countries.
Staggering levels of inequality.
Without immediate action to expand vaccination on a global scale, Americans still remain at risk.
