The  United States government has donated 76,050 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

This donation will be administered to those aged between 12 and 17.

The COVID-19 vaccines arrived in Mauritius on September 23 and were met at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam airport by representatives from the U.S. Embassy and the Government of Mauritius, represented by Health Minister Dr Kailesh Jagutpal and Foreign Affairs Minister Alan Ganoo.

The COVID-19 vaccine doses were shipped to Mauritius via the COVAX facility.

“Vaccines are the best way to control the pandemic, slow new variants, and return to economic prosperity. Mauritius has been a global leader in vaccination, and this donation from the American people will help protect young people between 12 and 17 years old,” U.S. Embassy Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Thomas Kohl said.

These 76,050 COVID-19 vaccine doses are part of the Biden Administration’s commitment to share over half a billion doses of Pfizer vaccine to more than 100 countries.
