On the morning of June 3, Eastern Standard Time, the White House announced the United States would share seven million vaccine doses with Asian countries, including Taiwan. MOFA expresses its sincere appreciation to the United States for extending a helping hand and showing warmth and compassion at a time when the government and people of Taiwan are battling against the pandemic.


Taiwan and the United States have worked together to fight the pandemic since announcing a Joint Statement on a Partnership against Coronavirus in March 2020. The government of Taiwan is very grateful for the recent public support expressed by US Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra and many friends in the US Congress on both sides of the aisle for Taiwan to have the access to vaccines. As a close partner of the United States in the Indo-Pacific region, Taiwan will continue to strengthen ties with the United States to combat the pandemic based on the existing firm foundation.
