Canada donates more than 750,000 COVID-19 AstraZeneca doses over two-month period

Canada has donated 762,080 doses of its surplus AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to countries in South America and the Caribbean in the last two months and has plans to donate more doses of mRNA vaccines in coming weeks. 

The donated AstraZeneca doses were distributed to 6 countries at the end of this summer: Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Jamaica, Ecuador, Barbados, and Peru. Donations were made through bilateral agreements, separate from Canada’s contribution to the COVAX global vaccine initiative, through which it has pledged an additional 40 million doses.
