‘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.
