Immunization saves millions of lives and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions.
World Immunization Week aims to highlight the collective action needed to ensure that every person is protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. This year’s theme: “Protected Together, #VaccinesWork”, encourages people at every level – from donors to the general public – to go further in their efforts to increase immunization coverage for the greater good.
