Vaccination rate

Race against time to vaccinate Vanuatu's population before borders open up

Vanuatu is locked down from international travellers but already P&O Cruises is accepting reservations for a May visit to Mystery Island in the country's south.

ABC Radio Australia reports the Director of Public Health Len Tarivonda is doubtful borders will even re-open by then.

He said people in the community on nearby Aneityum Island would first have to be vaccinated before cruise ships can visit.
