May 4, 2021
(Medscape) – Pfizer began exporting COVID-19 vaccines to Mexico last week that were made in its U.S. plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, according to Reuters. Last week’s shipment marks the first time that Pfizer has delivered doses abroad from U.S. facilities after a Trump administration restriction on dose exports expired at the end of March, the news outlet reported. Pfizer has shipped more than 10 million doses to Mexico so far, including 2 million last week, and has become Mexico’s largest COVID-19 vaccine supplier. Until now, Pfizer and BioNTech have supplied other countries with doses from the main European production plant in Belgium.
