Mongolia Receives 302,400 Pediatric Doses of Pfizer Vaccine Donated by the United States through COVAX

Ulaanbaatar, U.S. Embassy in Mongolia -- The United States is pleased to announce that the U.S. donation of 302,400 pediatric doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has arrived in Mongolia. These doses were delivered through COVAX and came directly from the Pfizer manufacturing plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

This donation brings the total number of COVID vaccine doses donated by the United States to Mongolia to more than 1.4 million. The United States remains committed to supporting the people of Mongolia as they move forward from this devastating pandemic. These donations through COVAX are part of that effort.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has provided over $8.1 million in support to Mongolia. This assistance is providing life-saving medicine, testing kits, urgent medical equipment and supplies, oxygen therapy, and personal protective equipment. USAID also provided 50 high-quality ventilators in December 2020 and training for health workers throughout the country on how to manage critically ill patients. USAID supports risk communication campaigns, infection prevention and control efforts in health facility and school settings, and vaccine distribution assistance.

In addition, the United States has provided critical medical equipment for more than 570 medical facilities and helped train nearly 12,700 healthcare workers to conduct outbreak surveillance, use and manage U.S. government-donated medical equipment, and deliver quality care for COVID-19 patients.

The United States, as Mongolia’s third neighbor, will continue to support the health and wellbeing of the Mongolian people.

The United States works with international partners to donate COVID-19 vaccines to the world and end the pandemic. America’s support for the global fight against COVID-19 includes:

  • Donating over 539 million vaccine doses to other countries.
  • Purchasing 1 billion vaccine doses to donate to nearly 100 developing countries.
  • Contributing $4 billion to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, in support of COVAX, the global initiative to equitably distribute safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines worldwide.
  • Delivering essential medicines, supplies and therapeutics, as well as other assistance to help countries rebuild economies, overcome food shortages and strengthen health security.

“The United States will be the world’s arsenal of vaccines in our shared fight against this virus,” President Biden said in a June 3, 2021, statement. “We will continue to do all we can to build a world that is safer and more secure against the threat of infectious disease.”
