Today, the United States announced it is donating 3.5 million doses of Moderna vaccine to Argentina to help curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
“The United States and Argentina are working together as strong partners to fight this global pandemic,” said MaryKay Carlson, the Chargé d’Affaires for the U.S. Embassy in Argentina. “We are proud to be able to deliver these safe and effective vaccines to people in Argentina. This is a unique moment in history that requires leadership and partnership. The United States will continue to lead the effort to build a world that is safer and more secure against the threat of infectious disease, and we are pleased to be working closely with Argentina in this important endeavour.”
The Biden-Harris Administration understands that putting an end to this pandemic requires eradicating COVID-19 in every corner of the world.
On a bilateral basis, the United States government has donated more than $4 million in COVID-relief supplies directly to Argentina. During his visit to Argentina in April, U.S. Southern Command Admiral Craig S. Faller donated three field hospitals, search and rescue equipment, and other supplies to help fight the outbreak of COVID-19.
