The recipients of the vaccines were identified by the African Union.

The United States will send more than 4.8 million doses of coronavirus vaccines to four African countries, the White House said.

White House officials said that the recipients of the vaccines were determined by the African Union, which includes 55 members.

One of the poorest countries in the world, Chad, will receive 115830 doses. The US ally Egypt, a country with a large population, will receive more than 3634020 doses. Located on the west coast of Africa, oil producer Gabon will receive 101,790 doses a large country on the east coast, Kenya will receive 99,990 doses.

The transferred vaccines from Pfizer should arrive in these countries on Friday or Saturday, the White House said. To develop immunity, two doses should be administered to a person.

Earlier this week, it was announced that the United States would allow the African Union to purchase a batch of 33 million doses of the two-dose Moderna vaccine, which were originally intended for the United States.
