U.S. to send 500,000 Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine doses to Uruguay

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States will ship 500,000 doses of Pfizer Inc’s COVID-19 vaccine to Uruguay on Thursday, the White House said, amid a wider distribution to Latin American nations this week.

The shipments are part of President Joe Biden’s commitment to share 80 million vaccines from the U.S. domestic supply with countries around the world.

“Today we ship 500,000 doses of Pfizer to Uruguay,” White House spokesman Kevin Munoz said in a Twitter post.

On Wednesday, the White House said the United States was sending 1 million Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine doses to Bolivia and 1 million to Paraguay.
