WORLD IMMUNIZATION WEEK 2020
#GS2 #Health #WHO
World Immunization Week is being celebrated this year with the theme “#VaccinesWork for All.”
- World Immunization Week is celebrated annually in the last week of April (24 to 30 April).
- It is a global public health campaign which aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease.
- Immunization is one of the most successful and cost effective health interventions. However, nearly 20 million children are still unvaccinated and under-vaccinated worldwide.
- The theme this year is #VaccinesWork forAll. The campaign focuses on how vaccines as well as the people who develop, deliver and receive them are vaccine champions by working to protect the health of everyone, everywhere.
