Pacific gets its own vaccine cold storage facility

Updated 7 May 2014, 8:50 AEST

It's been a while coming, but for the first time the Pacific has a purpose-built cold store for all vaccines.

Acquired with the help of the New Zealand government, the new facility is based in Fiji and will serve a dozen island nations across a vast area of the Pacific.

Dr. Naawa Sipilanyambe, Chief of Health and Sanitation with United Nations children's agency, UNICEF, says the cold store is a vital resource.
