As part of the United States Government’s commitment to the safety and security of the citizens of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), we have provided thousands of COVID-19 vaccine doses at no cost.
Because of our special and enduring relationship, the FSM was one of the first international partners with which we shared the vaccine that will fight the spread of COVID-19.
We are dedicated to ensuring the FSM is prepared to respond effectively to the COVID-19 pandemic and will provide thousands of doses of the Moderna vaccine to the Freely Associated States.
We are aware that all three Freely Associated States opted to receive the Moderna vaccine due to temperature storage concerns and are pleased they have begun inoculating frontline workers.
The United States, through the Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development, Department of the Interior, Department of Defense, Department of Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs, and many other agencies, will continue to honor our commitments to our partners in the FSM in our combined efforts to support a free and open Indo-Pacific region.
Together, we have hope that we will see a healthier and safer world in 2021.
