USA to share vaccine with Mexico and Canada

The United States plans to send roughly 4 million doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine to Mexico and Canada in loan deals with the two countries, yielding to requests to share shots with allies.

Mexico will receive 2.5 million doses of the vaccine and Canada is to receive 1.5 million doses, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

“It is not fully finalized yet but it is our aim,” Psaki told a daily briefing. “Ensuring our neighbors can contain the virus is ... mission-critical to ending the pandemic.”
