Help Save a Life with Boots and UNICEF

From now until 15th December 2009 Boots is offering its customers the opportunity to help protect vulnerable mothers and babies in the developing world from tetanus through UNICEF’s free vaccination programme.

For every pack of Pampers and Fairy Non-Bio sold in store or online at, Pampers will donate one tetanus vaccine to UNICEF’s campaign to help achieve the charity’s goal of eradicating newborn and maternal tetanus by 2012.

Furthermore, Boots will also donate one extra vaccine for every purchase of its limited edition baby bib – only £2.

Tetanus is still a major global public health problem in developing countries. An estimated 500,000 cases occur every year, killing approximately 200,000 young babies and 30,000 mothers.

So far, the UK campaign has delivered 40 million vaccines to at-risk mothers and babies in the developing world with Boots donating over one million vaccinations to UNICEF last year alone, a figure it hopes to exceed in 2009.

The offer includes all Pampers nappies and Fairy Non-Bio products. For every pack of Pampers wipes sold (priced from £1.39), a donation towards a vaccination will also be made.
