Through its network of global businesses and capabilities, AmerisourceBergen has supported the delivery of more than 75 million COVID-19 vaccines across 30-plus countries
Conshohocken, Pa. (October 6, 2021) – As part of efforts to securely deliver COVID-19 vaccines to countries worldwide, AmerisourceBergen’s network of global businesses has supported the collective distribution of more than 75 million vaccines across 30-plus countries.
Since December 2020, Innomar Strategies and World Courier, both a part of AmerisourceBergen, have worked with various government agencies and supply chain partners to deliver COVID-19 vaccines across the world. During the same timeframe, Alliance Healthcare—which AmerisourceBergen acquired in June from Walgreens Boots Alliance—has supported vaccine distribution efforts across Europe. The collective distribution support spans four continents and includes a wide range of services, from third-party logistics (3PL) and importation to temperature-controlled packaging, storage, and transport.
“We are incredibly proud of the support our teams continue to provide to enable reliable access to COVID-19 vaccines around the world—from islands off Norway to remote regions in northern Canada. However, we know the global vaccination rollout is still in its early stages and a tremendous amount of work is still needed to ensure people worldwide have access to these vaccines,” said Doug Cook, EVP and President, Business Group—Global, at AmerisourceBergen. “As supply increases, we remain prepared and ready to leverage our logistical expertise and distribution capabilities to support urgent efforts to broaden access globally.”
To date, AmerisourceBergen’s distribution efforts include:
“As a leading pharmaceutical wholesaler and logistics provider in Europe, Alliance Healthcare has been working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to safeguard the supply chain and ensure access to critical pharmaceutical products,” said Juan Guerra, SVP and Managing Director at Alliance Healthcare. “Since the first COVID-19 vaccines became available, we’ve been able to leverage our best-in-class distribution capabilities to support reliable, secure and efficient deliveries throughout Europe.”
The ongoing distribution support is part of urgent efforts to deliver COVID-19 vaccines across the world.
As of late September, about 44 percent of the world’s population had received at least one dose of a vaccine. However, only two percent of people in low-income countries have received a dose.
In addition to supporting global vaccine distribution efforts, AmerisourceBergen has worked closely with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to distribute COVID-19 therapies that have been approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). In collaboration with the U.S. government and a manufacturer partner, AmerisourceBergen also facilitated the urgent transportation of COVID-19 therapies to India in May.
