Coronavirus: Vaccination

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL1391, tabled on 30 June 2022

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have donated surplus COVID-19 vaccination doses to developing countries since June 2021; and if not, how many doses have been donated.

Answered on

14 July 2022

As of 1 July, the UK has donated 84.4 million covid-19 vaccines. Of these approximately 76.5 million have been donated to COVAX, and 7.9 million have been donated directly by the UK to countries in need.

Global supply of covid-19 vaccines now far outstrips demand, meaning countries have greater access to vaccines and dose donations are no longer critical. We are working with COVAX and other international partners to ensure that developing countries are able to roll-out vaccines and meet their national vaccination targets.
