European ADULT IMMUNISATION HUB

Celebrate World Immunisation Week 2020 with #VaccinesWork

It’s World Immunisation Week from 24 to 30 April. This year’s WIW is focussed around #VaccinesWork for all, with a key message of the campaign that “at all ages, vaccines save lives and keep us safe”. 

As part of the 2020 campaign, WHO and partners aim to: 

  • Demonstrate the value of vaccines for the health of children, communities and the world. 
  • Show how routine immunization is the foundation for strong, resilient health systems and universal health coverage.
  • Highlight the need to build on immunisation progress while addressing gaps, including through increased investment in vaccines and immunization. 

If you would like to join the debate and help share the importance of immunisation across the life-course, the World Health Organisation and partners have put together a social media kit, including images and informational videos on vaccines.
