U.S. Announces First COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery to Haiti

On July 14, the United States delivered the first 500,000 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to Haiti for the Haitian people with support from the U.S. Coast Guard.  The Government of the United States worked closely with the Government of Haiti to arrange the secure transfer of the Moderna vaccines to the people of Haiti – the first major international delivery of COVID doses to Haiti, with plans to share more doses soon.

The U.S. government, through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Southern Command, is also providing more than $3 million in financial and equipment support to the Haitian Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP). This support allows Haiti to improve its logistics capability for storage and distribution of the vaccine and craft communications to address vaccine hesitancy in the population.

 In these difficult times, we remain a committed partner to the Haitian people in building a more stable and secure Haiti, including in its fight against COVID.
