Join our historic vaccine mission
Every year, UNICEF vaccinates half the world’s children. Now, we’re taking the lead on COVID-19 vaccines.
This year, we will deliver 2 billion COVID-19 vaccines to frontline health workers and the world’s most vulnerable people. But we need your help.
COVID-19 has set back progress for children by decades. The future of a generation is at stake. That’s why we’re urgently vaccinating frontline health workers, social workers and teachers in countries that would otherwise miss out.

By vaccinating frontline workers we can keep millions of children safe, healthy and learning. Children are only safe if everyone they rely on is safe.
Your donation will help ensure:
- Vaccines get to the most remote places on earth
- Vaccines are safely stored using cold chain equipment
- Health workers are protected and trained to vaccinate their communities
"We all know that in the race to vaccinate
the world, there are no winners unless
we ALL win. Every country. Together."
Ready to delivery history
This is the biggest and most ambitious vaccination challenge in history, but there is no one better prepared than UNICEF. We have more than 70 years of experienced working on the ground in over 190 countries.

But it will take more than a vaccine to end the pandemic.
Our teams on the ground have been working tirelessly since the start of the coronavirus outbreak to stop the spread and support children and families. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have:
- kept more than 274 million children learning through distance learning when schools were closed.
- trained 3.3 million health workers on infection prevention and control.
- protected health workers on the frontlines with nearly half a billion items of personal protective equipment.
Be part of history. Donate today to help protect health workers on the frontlines of this crisis. No one is safe from COVID-19 until we are all safe.
Your donation will go directly towards funding UNICEF's work procuring and delivering COVID-19 vaccines and supplies to the countries who need it most around the world. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed UNICEF’s funding requirements for this appeal, your gift will go to supporting children in need in other emergencies.
