Written by on July 28, 2021

The U.S. government on Wednesday will ship more than 9 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to two of the most populous African countries – Nigeria and South Africa – as the continent battles a third wave of infections, White House officials said.

Four million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine will go to Nigeria and 5.66 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine to South Africa, the officials said.

The latest shipments bring the total number of U.S. vaccine doses sent to Africa to 16.4 million.
