To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, how many and what proportion of the 100 million doses of covid-19 vaccines that the UK committed to donating to countries in need by June 2022 have been delivered as of 26 May 2022.
6 June 2022
As of 26 May, the UK had donated 82.7 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines, of which 36.5 million had already been deployed in country and the rest were with COVAX in the process of being allocated and delivered.
The UK has made available 100 million doses. However, global supply now far outstrips demand and countries around the world have greater access to and choice of vaccines. Dose donations are no longer critical. The challenge now is to ensure that developing countries can effectively administer vaccines and the UK supports the work of the COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery Partnership to deliver on this.
