Under the Global Allocation of Plan, 25 million doses of corona vaccines are to be supplied by America to many countries of the world.
The US has lifted the ban on the export of raw materials needed for the manufacturing of the Coronavirus vaccine. Apart from this, India has also been given an important place in the list of its neighbouring and partner countries, to whom it is going to supply the coronavirus vaccine. This will be done under the Global Allocation Plan launched by US President Joe Biden. Under this campaign, 25 million doses of corona vaccines are to be supplied by America to many countries of the world.
India is also going to get a major part of this. This change in America’s stand is also notable because it had previously banned the export of raw materials needed for manufacturing the vaccine for the past few months. The decision also comes days after Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar’s visit to the US.
Spoke to @VP Kamala Harris a short while ago. I deeply appreciate the assurance of vaccine supplies to India as part of the US Strategy for Global Vaccine Sharing. I also thanked her for the all the support and solidarity from the US government, businesses and Indian diaspora.

Indian Ambassador to the US Taranjit Singh Sandhu gave this information while talking to the media on Thursday evening. The US had earlier implemented the Defense Production Act, due to which it was necessary for manufacturers to give priority to supplying in America. India had also appealed to America to remove this ban. After the demands, US President Joe Biden acknowledged India’s help in difficult times. Once this ban is lifted, the availability of raw materials will become easier for vaccine manufacturers.
After this step of America, vaccine supply will become easier. Speaking to a news agency, Sandhu said, “The distribution of vaccines will be done in two categories – first – through the COVAX initiative and directly to neighboring and partner countries.”
