The European Union has announced today an additional €500 million for the COVAX Facility, doubling
its contribution to date for the global initiative that is leading efforts to secure fair and equitable
access to safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines in low and middle-income countries. This new pledge
brings us closer to achieving COVAX's target to deliver 1.3 billion doses for 92 low and middle
income countries by the end of 2021. Team Europe is one of the lead contributors to COVAX with
over €2.2 billion, including another €900 million pledged today by Germany.
