The U.S. will earmark $4 billion for the global vaccine effort, President Joe Biden is expected to announce today during a virtual G-7 meeting. The hope is that this commitment encourages other leaders to follow suit.
“This pandemic is not going to end unless we end it globally,” said an official. “But pandemics travel [and] the more disease that’s out there, the more likely we are to see additional mutations and variants.”
The funds that will be allocated to this effort were originally a part of the virus relief package that was passed by lawmakers in December, and officials are emphasizing that American vaccinations continue to be the “highest priority.”
“In addition to saving a lot of lives…it’s also the right thing to do from a national security and economic perspective to benefit everyone in America,” an official said.
