US Support PNG

The U.S donates 302,400 vaccine doses to PNG

The first shipment of the single shots is part of the 80 million doses of vaccine that President Joe Biden committed from the U.S. vaccine supply to support global needs.

U.S. Ambassador to Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu Erin McKee said the United States was happy to support the PNG government in reducing the COVID-19 impact.

The vaccine dose donation follows a May response by the U.S. government to the PNG government’s request for critical assistance to confront the evolving COVID-19 situation in the country.
