Supporting UNICEF's effort to help deliver COVID-19 vaccines

Zurich Ireland, a lead member of the UNICEF Corporate Vaccine Alliance and the Z Zurich Foundation, are delighted to continue to support UNICEF’s efforts to deliver COVID-19 vaccines through the COVAX Facility. 


We recently ran our ‘1 Policy = 2 Vaccines’ campaign to support UNICEF deliver two doses of COVID-19 vaccine through the COVAX facility - for every new Zurich individual Car, Home, Life and Mortgage Protection policy issued in November. Thank you for all your support.

Zurich joins UNICEF Corporate Vaccine Alliance

UNICEF purchases over 2 billion vaccines for children each year and is uniquely placed to tackle the pandemic by accelerating the global rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.

Zurich Ireland is proud to be a Lead Member of the UNICEF Corporate Vaccine Alliance. Joining this initiative builds on the generosity of Zurich employees in Ireland who, when we launched our UNICEF COVAX appeal back in June, supported delivery of approximately 100,000 doses of vaccine to healthcare workers and the medically vulnerable in 92 low and middle-income countries.

Zurich's representation in the Alliance underlines our continued commitment to supporting communities and helping to build a more sustainable future for everyone on our planet.  For more information about the Alliance, click here.

While rich industrialised nations were able to secure millions of doses of vaccine at an early stage, poorer countries were left out. In the current year, nine out of ten people in countries with developing economies are likely to go without full vaccination. Vaccine inequity leaves lower income countries – many of them in Africa – at the mercy of COVID-19.

Regardless of the financial position, every country needs to have access to vaccines to protect its population against coronavirus. This is a matter of global equity and a moral test for our society.

The longer the coronavirus crisis lasts, the more serious its impacts on education, health, nutrition and the well-being of children worldwide. It will only be possible to find a way out of the pandemic if COVID-19 can be brought under control worldwide

Because no one is safe until we are all safe.
