Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced he will share another 20 million vaccine doses, backing up his promise at the G7 in June, to share 20 million vaccine doses with our region.
“We have already delivered more than 3.2 million of those. I’m pleased to announce today that Australia will share a further 20 million doses, and procure up to another 20 million doses beyond that.“
“That’s up to 60 million vaccine doses for our region, between now and the end of 2022.“
“We’re also looking to the next phase of recovery.“
The extra doses complement the Australian government’s commitment of $623.2 million to Indo-Pacific neighbours to help access vaccines and support national vaccine roll-outs.
