Since we have a lot of foolish MAGAts who think politics (ahem) trumps science, we donated a half billion doses of the Good Stuff, with no strings attached.
It’s like a humanistic Marshal Plan, and a good faith attempt to repair the damage wreaked by the previous sociopathic, mass-murdering, criminal “President”.
President Joe Biden on Thursday announced his plan to buy an additional 500 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine to distribute to lower-income countries, increasing the U.S. commitment to fighting the pandemic across the globe, a key goal of the G-7 summit.
“That’s a historic step. The largest single purchase and donation COVID-19 vaccines by any single country ever. Importantly, this is the mRNA vaccine, which is proven to be extremely effective against COVID-19 and every known variant of that virus thus far,” Biden said, touting the announcement in the Cornwall village of St. Ives, the United Kingdom seaside resort village where world leaders are gathering.
“These half a billion vaccines will start to be shipped in August, as quickly as they roll off the manufacturing line. 200 million of these doses will be delivered this year, 2021. And 300 million more will be delivered in the first half of 2022,” Biden added.
