The UN says providing COVID-19 vaccines to North Korea through the COVAX Facility is one of its priorities this year.
It added the WHO and UNICEF have been working with the regime's health ministry to develop a roll-out plan as well as other guidelines.
It's believed North Korea has not given vaccines to anyone yet.
The U.S. State Department says it has no plan for now, to share its vaccines with the North.
