Pfizer has begun exporting US-made Covid-19 vaccines; Mexico will be the first to receive

(Reuters) – A source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday that the shipment of the Covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer to Mexico this week includes doses made in the United States, the first of many doses exported from the United States.

The source says that the batch of vaccines, produced at Pfizer’s unit in Kalamazoo, Michigan, marks the first time the drug company has shipped overseas from a US headquarters after doses expired in late March under Trump.

The US government has come under pressure in recent weeks to provide surplus vaccines to other countries in need while making rapid progress in vaccinating their own people. Many virus-plagued countries are still struggling to obtain vaccines to help control the epidemic.

Pfizer has shipped more than 10 million doses to Mexico so far, becoming the largest supplier of Covid-19 vaccines to the country.

The Mexican Ministry of Health announced that it received 2 million doses from Pfizer this week.

Pfizer is producing its Covid-19 vaccine in partnership with German BioNTech.
