U.S. & Cuba Pledge Vaccines for Vietnam, But Only Cuba Offers to Share Vaccine Technology

HeadlineAug 25, 2021

Vice President Kamala Harris has announced the United States will provide 1 million additional COVID vaccine doses to Vietnam. Harris made the announcement earlier today during a meeting in Hanoi with Vietnam’s prime minister. On Tuesday, Cuba announced it, too, would send vaccines to Vietnam, in addition to sharing vaccine technology to help Vietnam make its own vaccines. In other vaccine news, Johnson & Johnson has revealed it has developed a booster shot that provides nine times as many antibodies as its original vaccine on its own.
