UNICEF is ensuring no one is left behind in the race to vaccinate against COVID-19. While people in any country are exposed to the virus, the whole world is still at risk. UNICEF’s goal is to ensure health workers and vulnerable people in every country –not just wealthier ones –are protected, and patients get the urgent medical supplies and oxygen they need

We need your help to close the vaccination gap and protect vulnerable people, wherever they are around the world. Join us in the biggest health and logistics project in history.


Who's getting vaccinated?

Vaccines are being prioritised for frontline health and social workers, teachers, and those at highest risk from the virus. UNICEF is also helping countries prepare and roll-out their vaccine programmes, turning vaccines into vaccinations.

Your donation will help struggling health services get back on their feet, as well as help millions of children go back to school, while protecting the most at-risk people.

Why UNICEF?

As experts in large-scale vaccination initiatives, UNICEF is the only global organisation ready to deliver an operation of this size. As part of the COVAX Facility, with your help UNICEF is using its extensive knowledge and infrastructure to deliver COVID-19 vaccines around the world, as well as supplying test kits and life-saving medical supplies to treat people who’ve contracted the virus.

COVAX is a ground-breaking collaboration between 191 countries - Its aim is simple: ensure every country in the world has fair and equal access to the COVID-19 vaccines, tests and treatments. It’s co-led by Gavi (The Vaccine Alliance) and the WHO, among others.

How can I help?

By donating or setting up a fundraiser, you’re helping to make sure no country is left at the mercy of the virus. Just £25 could provide 20 doses of COVID-19 vaccines to health workers, teachers or vulnerable people around the world. A £50 donation could train all health workers in a health facility on administering the COVID-19 vaccines, tests and treatments.

Global COVID-19 vaccines rollout began on 24th February 2021. In the first 2 weeks, nearly 30 million doses were delivered to 32 countries. This is just the beginning. With your help, we’ll deliver 2 billion before the end of the year.

Global access to vaccines, tests and treatments

The path out of the pandemic is clear. But we can only get out together. We must close the vaccination gap and make sure lower-income countries have fair and equal access to vaccines, tests and treatments.We cannot let them wait. UNICEF is on a mission to get vaccines, tests and treatments past all obstacles, so no country is left behind.

Your support will help us get there.
