UNICEF is the largest procurer of vaccines worldwide, helping to reach half the world's children with life-saving immunisations.
Yet almost 14 million infants globally are not receiving any vaccines, putting them and their families at risk of disease and death. As more stress is placed on already overstretched health systems by COVID-19 around the world, essential services like vaccinations are being disrupted.
As these systems struggle to cope, marginalised children who need these life-saving immunisations the most are missing out. All too often, children in remote or poor communities are underserved or missed by vaccination programs altogether.
However, health workers around the world are working hard to reach children with crucial vaccines, no matter what.
