The UK also pledged 40 million USD to the COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access Facility (COVAX) Advanced Market Commitment, promising to donate 1 pound for every 4 dollars received from donors around the world.

Canada, Japan, and Germany have helped raise more than 1.7 billion USD for the program, which will distribute 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to 92 developing countries this year.
