The United States asked Santa to bring an additional 5 million doses of the life-saving Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines through the COVAX facility to Pakistan, just in time for the holidays.  This donation, which should arrive on Christmas Day or shortly thereafter, brings the total number of COVID-19 vaccines donated by the U.S. government to the Pakistani people to more than 37 million.

U.S. Embassy Islamabad’s Chargé d’affaires Angela P. Aggeler said, “Getting vaccinated is the best gift you can give your loved ones this holiday season.  Celebrate the coming new year by getting your jab.”

These Pfizer vaccines are part of the 500 million Pfizer doses the United States purchased this summer to deliver to 92 countries worldwide, including Pakistan, to fulfill President Biden’s commitment to provide safe and effective vaccines around the world and supercharge the global fight against the pandemic. The United States has already delivered more that 300 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine worldwide.
