The tiny Pacific country Nauru has set a world record for vaccination against Covid-19, its entire adult population received the first dose, AP reported.

The remote island nation, one of the few places in the world free of the virus, said its four-week vaccination campaign exceeded expectations.

The first dose was received by 7,392 people, or 108 percent of the adult population, including foreigners.

The national COVID-19 task force is extremely pleased with this world record result and thanks everyone on Nauru for playing their part in keeping Nauru safe, the government said in a statement.

Nauru receives AstraZeneca vaccines as part of the global Covax program to boost immunization in poorer countries.
