IRISH ACTOR Liam Neeson is urging Irish people to donate Covid-19 vaccines to some of the poorest areas of the world as part of a new UNICEF campaign.
The 69-year-old has helped to launch the 'Get a Vaccine, Give a Vaccine' programme, which aims to encourage people in the western world not only to get themselves vaccinated, but to donate the cost of another vaccine to poorer countries where supplies are severely limited.
The campaign plans to raise enough money to send two billion doses of the vaccine to healthcare workers and vulnerable people around the world.
Neeson, who is a Goodwill Ambassador for the charity, is now asking the people of Ireland to do their bit, and help those who don't have free access to the jabs like we do.
"If you've been vaccinated against Covid, you can now give a vaccine to someone in need by supporting UNICEF in the biggest vaccination campaign in history," the Taken star said.
"Wealthy countries are racing to vaccinate their populations, yet billions of people in poor countries don't have any vaccines.
"Scientists tell us that no one is safe until everyone is safe. But today you can help UNICEF make everybody in the world safe by giving a vaccine.
"UNICEF is currently delivering two billion vaccines to the poorest countries, but we need your help.
"So if you get a vaccine, please give a vaccine by going to unicef.ie today."
To donate, you can either visit UNICEF's website, or donate €4 by texting 'VACCINE' to 50300.
