Vaccines Save Lives

Vaccines are safe and effective. Vaccines protect children against disease and death, saving up to three million lives every year – more than five lives saved every minute of every day.

Yet, over 1.5 million people die annually from diseases that can be prevented by vaccination. Nearly 20 million children didn’t receive even the most basic vaccines in 2019, leaving them vulnerable to dangerous diseases.

UNICEF reaches almost half of the world’s children with lifesaving vaccines. Vaccines play a central role in ending preventable child deaths. Vaccines have prevented polio, smallpox and measles from spreading for generations. Soon, vaccines will help slow the spread of COVID-19 too.

DONATE TODAY. Be the shield to protect children.

COVID-19 VACCINE: Help Deliver History

  • Vaccines for COVID-19 are critical tools for helping bring the pandemic under control. As the largest single vaccine buyer in the world, UNICEF is leading the procurement and supply of the COVID-19 vaccine to protect children in need.
  • We are working to ensure that 190 countries participating in the Global COVAX Facility have equitable access to 2 billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine by the end of 2021.
  • Children will NOT be prioritized for COVID-19 vaccines, but the impact on children would be devastating if a strong health system is not available to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is donating to support UNICEF's immunization effort so important?

Vaccination is the most important public health intervention in history. Millions of children are protected every year from death and disability through safe and affordable vaccines. 

UNICEF and partners support immunization and vaccination programmes in over 100 countries to help realize children’s right to survival and good health. UNICEF also works with partners to strengthen immunization programmes to identify and prioritize children who have missed out on their vaccination.

• Immunization saves children’s lives, but nearly 20 million children didn’t receive even the most basic vaccines in 2019, leaving them vulnerable to dangerous diseases.
• Immunization is the most cost-effective child health intervention. Every dollar spent on childhood immunizations yields US$44 in economic benefits. These include savings on medical costs and productivity loss.
• Today, 1.5 million people die each year because they weren’t vaccinated.
• In 2017, one fourth of all deaths among children under five were from pneumonia, diarrhoea and measles. The majority of these deaths could have been prevented through vaccination.

What is cold chain logistics?

Vaccine supplies must be kept safe and at the right temperature to be effective – the so-called cold chain. Therefore, UNICEF and partners harness solar power, mobile technology and telemetrics to distribute vaccines and keep vaccines safe through cold chain logistics, so to make sure vaccines reach those in need without losing their effectiveness from exposure to extreme heat or cold weather conditions.

Will children get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Children’s immune systems are different from those of adults and can vary significantly depending on their age. At present, WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccines are not recommended for anyone under the age of 16-18 years (depending on the individual vaccine), even if they belong to a high-risk group. Children were not included in the initial trials for COVID-19 vaccines, so there is currently limited or no data on the safety or efficacy of vaccines for children below the age of 16. More research is needed and we will update the recommendations as trials are conducted and more information becomes available.

By vaccinating the wider community with #COVID19 vaccines, children will be protected through herd immunity. 

It is important, however, to make sure that all the children are continuing to receive routine childhood vaccinations. Read about how to do so safely.

What is herd immunity?

If enough people in your community are immunized against a certain disease, you can reach something called herd immunity. When this happens, diseases can’t spread easily from person to person because most people are immune. This provides a layer of protection against the disease even for those who cannot be vaccinated, such as infants.

Herd immunity also prevents outbreaks by making it difficult for the disease to spread. The disease will become more and more rare, sometimes even disappearing entirely from the community.

What is COVAX? What is UNICEF's role in the procurement and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines?

COVAX is part of a global effort aimed at accelerating the development and manufacture of COVID-19 vaccines, and to guarantee fair and equitable access around the world. No country will be safe from COVID-19 until all countries are protected. There are 190 countries and territories engaged in the COVAX Facility, which account for over 90 per cent of the world’s population. 

Through the COVAX Facility – together with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, WHO and CEPI – UNICEF is leveraging its unique experience as the largest single vaccine buyer in the world by working with manufacturers and partners on the procurement of COVID-19 vaccine doses, as well as freight, logistics and storage. We are also bringing the full weight of our strength in community engagement and our expansive social mobilization network to build demand and acceptance for vaccines.

Why should I donate to UNICEF and where does my donation go?

Your donation and contribution to UNICEF is vital to help a child in need be it in Malaysia or globally.

UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to promote and protect the rights of children. When you donate to UNICEF, you contribute to their well-being through programmes that help children survive and thrive to adulthood, providing essential medicines, nutrition, vaccines, educational, health and emergency supplies. As a leading organisation working for children, UNICEF also uses its global influence to advocate for the long-term needs of children and women around the world. Because UNICEF is not funded by the United Nations, we depend entirely on regular donations to continue making positive changes for children in Malaysia and around the world.

Together, with your help, we can improve the lives of children in need today.

When I donate to UNICEF, is it tax deductible in Malaysia?

Yes, when you donate to UNICEF, you get to enjoy tax exemption benefits from the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (LHDN) for donations of RM50 and above, as according to section 44(6) of the Income tax Act 1967, Malaysia.

How can I donate to UNICEF Malaysia on a monthly basis?

There are 3 methods that you can choose from to donate: Through credit card, debit card or via auto-debit from a Maybank (MBB) account. 
(Note: Donation method via cheque is ONLY accepted when the donors prefer NOT to donate through their credit cards or MBB bank account)

When I donate to UNICEF Malaysia, how does it get deducted monthly?

After you make your initial UNICEF donation, future donations will be automatically charged to your credit card or deducted monthly from your bank account. For example, if you choose to donate monthly an amount of RM100 today, your next donation of RM100 will be automatically charged to your account in exactly one month to the day, and each subsequent month thereafter. 

Why does the programme have monthly donation schemes?

A monthly UNICEF donation provides steady and cost-effective source of income. As our country programmes are long-term and permanent, each month you donate allows us to focus on teaching, encouraging and mentoring local communities to build local capacity and help their own children. It also allows us to focus on strategic long-term goals in order to provide permanent solutions to ongoing worldwide difficulties for children. 
Because monthly donations to UNICEF Malaysia are processed automatically, this helps to reduce our administrative costs - which allows us to spend more on programmes for children.

Can I make a one-time donation to UNICEF Malaysia?

Yes, you can donate one-time and any amount is greatly appreciated. However, we encourage a monthly donation as it enables us to plan effectively in our upcoming work for children; knowing that we have the funds in hand to invest in long-term solutions and making a positive impact for children.

What happens to the UNICEF donations raised?

As stewards for the world's most vulnerable children, we believe it is our responsibility to use every Ringgit received from our donors wisely. Your UNICEF donation goes directly towards the mission of our organization, including programme services and engaging the public. For more information, kindly refer to UNICEF Malaysia Annual Report 2020.

How is UNICEF Malaysia funded and how much of UNICEF’s donations goes to children?

Although part of the United Nations (UN) system, UNICEF does not receive any funding from the UN. All the funding UNICEF receives is provided by voluntary contributions from governments, private individuals and businesses from around the world, as well as foundations and the general public.

For every 1 Ringgit you donate to UNICEF, about 80 sen goes to helping save and transform children’s lives. We spend about 20 sen on policy, management, administration and reinvestment.

Your contribution helps support the provision of essential medicines, vaccines, educational, health and emergency supplies to help children in Malaysia and globally survive and thrive to adulthood. UNICEF also uses its global influence to advocate for the long-term needs of children and women around the world.

How many years am I pledging to donate for?

If you are a monthly donor, you are also eligible for tax exemption for your donation to UNICEF, which is expected to be received in the first quarter of every year.

If you are a one-time donor, you will receive a donation receipt from UNICEF for every donation you make. For every donation of RM50 and above, it is also tax exempt under Section 44(6) of the Income Tax Act 1967.
