To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, with reference to the press release entitled UK to donate 100 million coronavirus vaccine doses, published on 11 June 2021, how many and what proportion of those vaccines have been donated as of 20 September 2022.

The UK made available 100 million doses and donated 85 million doses to over 42 countries by the June 2022 target date. Of these, approximately 76.5 million have been delivered to COVAX, and 9.1 million have been delivered bilaterally. Global vaccine supply now far outstrips demand, so our focus has switched to helping low-income countries reach their national vaccination targets with the vaccines they have available through the COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery Partnership.
