World Immunization Week

This week, April 24-30 we celebrate World Immunization Week.

In the past, this week has been used to get the message out about the importance of vaccines and immunization.

This year, there’s more to the story. We are in the middle of a vaccination effort that needs the whole world to participate. And that includes ensuring the whole world has access.

The worldwide pandemic is keeping us apart, and we cannot come together until we work together. This year’s theme is “Vaccines Bring us Closer”.

During this week, there is something very specific you can do to take action: Please find time to learn more about vaccines and immunizations.
