The Biden administration on Monday took another step in its effort to boost COVID-19 vaccination efforts globally, as it unveiled the allocation for 55 million doses from the U.S. supply. About 41 million doses will be shared through the U.N.-backed COVAX program, with 14 million for Latin American and Caribbean nations such as Brazil or Haiti, 16 million for Asian countries such as India or Vietnam, and 10 million for African nations. Separately, the administration said about 14 million doses will be shared with "regional priorities and other recipients," including Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Yemen, Tunisia, Oman, West Bank and Gaza, Ukraine, Kosovo, Georgia, Moldova and Bosnia.
