The US will share up to 60 million doses of its AstraZeneca vaccine with other countries as they become available, the White House says, APA reports.

The doses will be able to be exported in the coming months after a federal safety review, AP news agency reports.

Although the AstraZeneca jab is widely used around the world, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet authorised it.

The US has been under mounting pressure to share its vaccine supply.
