China has announced plans to provide 10 million COVID-19 vaccine doses under the COVID-19 Vaccine Global Access (COVAX) Facility, from which Dominica is set to receive 20,000,  the Chinese Embassy in Dominica has said.

The Covax program, which aims to provide two billion doses of vaccine, pools funding from richer countries to ensure poorer nations can inoculate their health workers and most vulnerable citizens, on the basis that the pandemic would remain a global threat if it was not tackled worldwide.

China provided medical aid for Dominica and other countries in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, and promised to contribute to the accessibility and affordability of vaccines in developing countries including Dominica.
