US Donates Over 580,000 Pfizer Vaccines To Zambia


The United States, through the COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access (COVAX) facility, delivered 580,320 Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine doses to the people of Zambia. This is the first delivery of Pfizer vaccine doses to Zambia following four successful deliveries of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine. This latest delivery brings the total number of vaccines provided by the United States to Zambia to over 1.5 million doses (974,400 doses of J&J, and 580,320 doses of Pfizer).

To accelerate the global fight against COVID-19 and reinforce the United States’ ongoing support to increase vaccinations, the U.S. government is sharing these doses safely, equitably, and with no strings attached. The vaccines are provided with the sole intent of saving lives.

Vaccination against COVID-19 is the best way to end the pandemic. The United States has committed to provide more than 1.1 billion vaccine doses worldwide and has provided more than 234 million vaccine doses to over 100 countries and economies. As the largest single country donor to COVAX, today’s delivery illustrates the United States’ continued commitment to protecting Zambians with lifesaving vaccines.


  1. Why do we like donations especially vaccines…why cant we just get the product from pfizer themselves this is why you end with cast off products.

  2. Tarino is a stupid dull f00I. There is nothing wrong with donations. Zambia has the capacity to check and verify the safety of medical products. Chimbwi iwe. Fuseke

  3. Iwe f00lish ichi Kaizar Zero i see Lungu made you dull with his begging bowl mentality.Donations make us weaker and unable to think for ourself.

  4. Thank you US govt, but please don’t give too much otherwise our lazy PF comrades in poverty will never learn to fish for ourselves.

  5. Mlevi Kachasu – Please don’t respond to it …that’s what it wants you trading insults with it so it takes charge of debate utilising it greatest strengths which is name-calling and insulting.

    The reason is because we do not have money to buy these medicines.
    The USA have actually paid for these medications and donated them to us.
    Buying Covid 19 Vaccinations has become a very contentious process because every
    nation wants to buy them but supply at present is very slow from the pharmaceuticals.
    Powerful nations are being given preferences.

  7. As I said fuseke. You moved abroad there so you are beggars in another man’s land. If you are so proud why aren’t you living in zambia and self sufficient. Pride nanjala fuseke

  8. Mature people will ignore this irrelevant fake @Kaizer Zulu. Do not acknowledge its existence. Ignore it. At some point even *****s realize what they are. The product of incest is in denial. When it is not spewing venom here it is sleeping with its sisters or mother. Go away loser.
