US Government to Send 3-million Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine to Brazil

On Thursday, 24th June 2021, the government of the United States said, it is going to send 3-million doses of the novel corona virus developed by the company Johnson & Johnson to Brazil, the country which is having the second highest novel corona virus death toll in the world.

The official of US government said, the shipment, which is a part of the pledge of government of United States for the donation of 80-million novel corona virus vaccines, is going depart from Florida on an Azul flight, bound for Campinas, which is a city located in the south-eastern region of Brazil, that is around 62 miles away from Sao Paulo.

The donation from the United States come as Brazil is continuing to fight against the novel corona virus, that has claimed more than half a million lives in the country, along with aggravating the deep political divides ahead of the presidential election, scheduled in 2022 and it has also caused unrest in the country.

The government of the United States said, the legal and regulatory authorities along with the scientific teams from both the United States and Brazil have been working together to ensure the delivery of the vaccines, and the one-shot novel corona virus, that has been produced by Johnson & Johnson has been seen as particularly very helpful in ensuring the effective novel corona virus vaccination rates in the remote areas of the country as the vaccine does not require a second dose, and the FDA of United States have authorized the usage of the vaccine.
