The U.S. is proud to announce a shipment of 12,870 Pfizer vaccines to Guyana. This brings the total number of vaccines donated to Guyana to 301,860. The United States has also donated over US$793,500 to Guyana in COVID-19 related assistance, from the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Department of Defense.
Global crises require global responses, and the United States is proud to have contributed $4 billion to COVAX, the largest commitment globally from a single country.
This contribution builds on decades of U.S. investments in global health and global health organizations and demonstrates the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to build back better by strengthening multilateral cooperation on global health. We encourage every eligible Guyanese to take steps to prevent the spread of the pandemic through getting the vaccine and adhering to COVID-19 protocols, as established by the Ministry of Health
