IAG ships 10 million vaccines, but a long way to go

[ August 12, 2021   //   ]

IAG Cargo says it has transported over 10 million Covid vaccines worldwide on its constant Climate service. This includes a 4 million dose shipment to Abuja, Nigeria for UNICEF’s Covax initiative and 300,000 doses to Jamaica, donated by the UK government in partnership with its Crown Agents arm.

However, Crown Agents chief executive Fergus Drake said: “As of today, 29% of the world’s population has been vaccinated. Urgent help is needed to ensure 70% vaccine coverage in every country in 2022 as per the WHO’s recommendation.”
