The United Kingdom will introduce nine million COVID-19 vaccines around the world, particularly in Africa and Asia, to help fight the pandemic. Senegal is one of the beneficiary countries of this vaccine donation within the framework of COVAX. They will get exactly 140,160 doses of the vaccine. The announcement was made by Foreign Minister Dominic Raab on Wednesday 28 July.
Of the 9 million doses donated by the UK, five million are donated to COVAX, the program to ensure equitable and global access to Covid-19 vaccines. COVAX will distribute them immediately to low-income countries through a equitable allocation system, which prioritizes the provision of vaccines to those who need them most.
Four million additional doses will be shared directly with countries in need. Thus, Senegal will receive 140,160 doses, 600,000 doses will be sent to Indonesia and 300,000 to Jamaica among other countries.
As a reminder, the United Kingdom has pledged to donate 100 million vaccines abroad by June 2022, including 80 million to Covax.
