ONE welcomes Biden plan to share AstraZeneca doses, but cautions more sharing is needed

WASHINGTON — The ONE Campaign released the below statement today welcoming President Biden’s reported plan to share excess AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine doses, but cautioned the US must do more to share vaccines.

According to analysis from ONE, the US has secured more than 550 million excess COVID-19 vaccine doses than it needs to cover all Americans. While wealthy countries continue ramping up vaccinations, less than 1 percent of COVID-19 vaccine doses globally have been administered to people in low-income countries.

Tom Hart, acting CEO at The ONE Campaign:

“The Biden administration’s decision to begin sharing AstraZeneca vaccines is welcome news and an important first step towards the US sharing more of its massive vaccine stockpile. The US vaccine supply will soon exceed the domestic demand, crossing a critical threshold for sharing doses abroad. The US has secured more than 550 million excess doses that could be used to help end the global pandemic faster. The Biden administration should build on this welcome first step and start sharing more vaccines as soon as possible.”
