Drones deliver vaccines in Vanuatu
Dec 19, 2018
A one-month-old baby recently received an essential vaccine through the use of a drone. The baby is the first person ever to get vaccination delivered by drones. Swoop Aero is an Australian aero transportation company that offers solutions such as delivery and air shipments, and the Australian government hired the company to try out its new service. Vanuatu is a remote island that has a lot of issues concerning the delivery of essential goods, especially vaccines which present a difficult task to transport due to poor storage limitations and rough roads.
