Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is expected to ask US President Joe Biden to share some Covid-19 vaccine supplies on Monday, according to a Mexican government official familiar with the plans of the conversation.
The two leaders will hold a virtual bilateral meeting on Monday.
The official told CNN that what the collaboration might look like – a purchase, donation or loan agreement – is not specified.
The source said the first step is to ask whether the United States is ready to cooperate.
Mexico has purchase agreements in effect For hundreds of millions of vaccine doses with different vaccine makers around the world, most of which have yet to be fulfilled.
It has also purchased vaccine supplies from both Russia and China, but has not received any vaccines directly from the United States, its most important ally and largest trading partner.
The US company, Pfizer, shipped Covid-19 vaccines to Mexico – but they were produced in European laboratories and reached relatively limited supplies.
As of Sunday evening, Mexico had reported having given less than 2.5 million doses of coronavirus vaccines.
