Biden says US plans to offer Canada extra COVID-19 vaccines in future

U.S. President Joe Biden says he’s planning to give surplus COVID-19 vaccines to other countries, including Canada, in the future as his country’s vaccination rollout hits another milestone.

Biden said he spoke to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Wednesday about providing additional vaccine assistance to Canada, but also suggested some of the extra vaccines could go to Central America.

He noted that the U.S. doesn’t yet have enough to send at this time, but said the U.S. could provide help down the line.

Biden said on Wednesday that the U.S. has delivered 200 million COVID-19 vaccine shots in the first 200 days of his office. He said the original goal was deliver 100 million vaccine shots in the first 100 days of his office, something they completed in only 58 days. The goal of 200 million vaccines was completed in 92 days.
