US has so far delivered more than 250 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to more than 100 countries
The United States (US) delivered one million life-saving doses of the Moderna mRNA vaccine to help Thailand fight COVID-19.
This delivery of Moderna doses complements the historic shipment of 1.5 million Pfizer mRNA COVID-19 vaccine doses provided by the US to Thailand in July of this year.
These Moderna doses will support Thailand’s ongoing vaccination efforts and boost public confidence as Thailand moves forward with plans to reopen and reenergize its economy.
The US and Thailand have had a special economic relationship since the signing of the Treaty of Amity and Commerce nearly 200 years ago.
This latest vaccine delivery builds upon US Government investments in Thailand of more than $1 billion in total assistance over the past 20 years, which includes nearly $214 million for health. In addition to these 2.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses, the United States has provided tens of millions of dollars in COVID-19 related assistance to Thailand since the start of the outbreak.
