Nauru is the first country in the Pacific Region to receive full vaccines to cover 20% percent of the population under the Covax Facility.

YAREN, 02 APRIL 2021 (PACNEWS)—Nauru is the first country in the Pacific region to receive full vaccines to cover 20 percent of the population under the COVAX Facility.
“Congratulations to the government and the people of Nauru!,” UNICEF said on twitter. 7,200 doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines landed in Nauru today.
This was made possible through the COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access (COVAX) facility. COVAX is co-led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), Gavi and the World Health Organisation (WHO), alongside key delivery partner, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The facility offers a reliable supply of safe and efficient vaccines especially for Pacific countries like Nauru, who do not have direct access to manufacturers.
