One such young mum, is Aimata. She comes from a large family that knows the best way to protect her son, and the community, is to get vaccinated. At the vaccine clinic in Rarotonga with her son, she told us she wants little Tukeitaua to “have the best protection.”
Giving every child a future
Over the next three years, UNICEF, with support from Rotary, is aiming to deliver 300,000 vaccine doses to children across the Pacific, and that is just the beginning.
Working with local governments, UNICEF will ensure that immunisation programs are sustainably developed across nine Pacific countries, so that the future generations have access to these life-saving vaccines.
“I got my son vaccinated because I
wanted him to have the best protection.”
