Dominic Raab – 2021 Comments on Covid-19 Vaccines in the Ivory Coast

The comments made by Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, on 1 March 2021.

Today, with UK aid support, people in Côte d’Ivoire are the first to receive vaccinations through COVAX – the biggest ever global vaccine campaign to end the pandemic.

We’re proud to be one of the biggest donors to COVAX, securing over one billion doses for the most vulnerable around the world. We do it because we want to be a force for good in the world, and because we need a global solution to a global pandemic.
