On June 22, the U.S. government announced the direct donation of vaccine doses to Tunisia as a demonstration of the strength of the U.S.-Tunisia bilateral relationship. The United States is sharing COVID-19 vaccine doses with Tunisia to help save lives and restore economic opportunities across the country.
On June 3, the Biden-Harris Administration announced its framework for sharing at least 80 million doses. The allocation of the first 55 million doses includes Tunisia. We are donating from the U.S. vaccine supply and encouraging other countries with supplies to do the same. We are also working with U.S. vaccine manufacturers to significantly increase vaccine supply for the rest of the world to bring an end to the global pandemic.
