Officials are stepping up efforts to reach some of the world’s most remote regions in a global vaccination drive, as the world crosses 1 billion total COVID-19 vaccines administered.

The WHO is pushing to increase trust and investment in vaccines during World Immunization Week, which runs until Friday, with the message that “vaccines bring us closer.”
