When isolated from her family, Francisca Ohaco Magallanes, a great-great-grandmother, feels strange. But after she and her children received doses of COVID-19 vaccine, the 92-year-old, who lives in Villa Soriano, Uruguay, can again spend time with her family.

“I’m relieved that all my children are vaccinated,” Magallanes told UNICEF in August. “For me, it’s like reinforcement, another life I’ve been given.”
