Prishtina, 19 January 2021 – Today, UNICEF in partnership with the British Embassy in Kosovo and the Luxembourg Government donated 1,344 vaccine carriers for regular immunization which will contribute to strengthening the vaccination programme in Kosovo. The vaccine carries are part of UNICEF’s support to strengthen the cold chain infrastructure in Kosovo. Thanks to the carriers, mobile teams of health workers will be able to provide targeted immunization services for communities and children who are the hardest to reach, such as children from rural areas, children from non-majority communities, and those children living with disabilities or further away from health centers these carriers will also be used by front doctors and nurses as part of COVID-19 vaccine deployment in Kosovo.
