UN says it sent range of vaccines to North Korea for pregnant women and children

New report from UNICEF makes no mention of COVID jabs three years into pandemic

The U.N. said Wednesday shipped a range of vaccines to North Korea last year, along with nutritional aid to support nearly 1 million pregnant women and children.

UNICEF dispatched vaccines for tuberculosis, rubella, polio and Pentavalent diseases, the organization states in their East Asia and Pacific Region Humanitarian Situation Report for the last quarter of 2022. The report does not mention COVID-19 vaccines.
