  • President Joe Biden will announce that the U.S. plans to send at least 20 million additional coronavirus vaccine doses to foreign countries still being battered by the pandemic, CNBC reports.

  • Doses of vaccines produced by Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE) - BioNTech SE (NASDAQ: BNTX), Moderna Inc (NASDAQ: MRNA), and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) will be shipped by the end of June.

  • The President will reveal the information in a COVID-19-centric speech at 1 p.m. ET, the White House said.

  • The plans come weeks after the White House announced it would send 60 million doses of AstraZeneca Plc's (NASDAQ: AZN) COVID-19 vaccine to countries in need once the FDA approves the shots.

  • Combined with the new shipments, the Biden administration aims to send a total of 80 million doses abroad within the next six weeks.
