The United States—through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)—announced US$5.2 million in urgent COVID-19 assistance for Jamaica.

These funds will support the Government of Jamaica (GOJ) to address urgent needs and fill gaps in order to accelerate widespread, equitable access to and the delivery and up-take of safe effective COVID-19 vaccines; and to reduce morbidity and mortality due to COVID-19 through critical public health and clinical interventions.

This additional assistance from the historic American Rescue Plan builds on the more than US$10 million in COVID-19 assistance the U.S. government has donated to the government and people of Jamaica since the pandemic first broke out.
