‘India will be significant recipient of US vaccines’
WASHINGTON: India will be a “significant recipient” of US vaccines, the country’s envoy in Washington has said as President Joe Biden announced details of his administration’s decision to share 25 million Covid-19 shots to countries across the globe that have been facing vaccine shortages.
Biden’s move is part of his administration’s framework for sharing 80 million vaccines globally by the end of June.
“India will be a significant recipient of US vaccines as India has been included in both the identified categories in the allocation announced today- direct supply to neighbours and partner countries, and under the COVAX initiative,” India’s Ambassador to the US, Taranjit Singh Sandhu, said.
