The World Immunization Week observed each year in the last week of April. It aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease.
World Immunization Week aims to:
- Reframe the global vaccine conversation to focus on the importance of vaccines.
- Highlight the many ways in which vaccines enable us to live healthy, productive lives by preventing the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases.
Immunization saves millions of lives every year and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions. Yet, there are still nearly 20 million children in the world today who are not getting the vaccines they need.
The main goal of the campaign is to urge greater engagement around immunization globally and the importance of vaccination in improving health and wellbeing of everyone, everywhere throughout life.
