The U.S. Donates 1.5 Million More Moderna Vaccines Doses to Indonesia

U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Indonesia

JAKARTA, U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Indonesia -- The U.S. government and the American people continue to support the people of Indonesia in the fight against COVID-19. Today, the United States delivered 1.5 million doses of Moderna vaccine doses to Indonesia, part of a continuing flow of vaccine donations, in partnership with COVAX, the Government of Indonesia, and UNICEF. These safe and effective vaccine doses will save lives and help protect the people of Indonesia against COVID-19.

The United States is the largest donor to COVAX, with a total commitment of $4 billion, which has helped Gavi to facilitate the donation of more than 44.7 million total vaccine doses to Indonesia. Bilaterally, the United States has now donated 18.4 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to Indonesia. As part of the United States’ enduring commitment to continue leading the world’s COVID-19 vaccination efforts, the United States is donating a total of 1.1 billion COVID-19 vaccines to low and lower-middle income countries around the globe. Worldwide, the United States has already delivered 291 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines with no strings attached and has pledged to deliver 200 million more doses by March 2022.

In addition to the gift of vaccines, the U.S. government through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is working with the Government of Indonesia and other partners to strengthen Indonesia’s vaccination programs by supporting additional vaccination sites, training health workers to administer vaccines, countering vaccine misinformation, and more. To date, over 3,400 USAID-supported vaccinators at 768 mobile and temporary vaccine sites have vaccinated over 1.1 million Indonesians against COVID-19.

Since the onset of the pandemic, the U.S. government has committed more than $77 million to support Indonesia’s COVID-19 response, building on more than $1 billion in health-related assistance over the last two decades. The United States works closely with Indonesia to accelerate COVID-19 case detection and tracking, improve laboratories, disease surveillance, and rapid-response capacity, and ensure that more people know what to do to protect themselves and each other.

Since March 2020, our support has reached more than 165 million people in Indonesia— 60 percent of the country’s population. The United States has helped approximately 44,000 frontline healthcare workers and strengthened more than 1,400 hospitals and clinics around the country. We remain committed to partnering with the government and people of Indonesia to save lives and work toward the safe reopening of the Indonesian economy.
