For over 200 years, vaccines have protected us against diseases which threaten lives and prohibit our

development. With their help, we can

progress without the burden of diseases like smallpox and polio, which cost humanity hundreds of millions of lives.

World Immunization Week, celebrated in the last week of April, aims to highlight the collective action needed and to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease.

Through its convening power, WHO works with countries across the globe to raise awareness of the value of vaccines and immunization and ensures that governments obtain the necessary guidance and technical support to implement high quality immunization programmes.

The ultimate goal of World Immunization Week is for more people – and their communities – to be protected from vaccine-preventable diseases.

2021 Theme:  "Vaccines Bring Us Closer"

As part of the 2021 campaign, WHO, partners and individuals around the world will unite to:

  • Increase trust and confidence in vaccines to maintain or increase vaccine acceptance

  • Increase investment in vaccines, including routine immunization, to remove barriers to access 

 

While the world focuses on critically important new vaccines to protect against COVID-19, there remains a need to ensure routine vaccinations are not missed. Many children have not been vaccinated during the global pandemic, leaving them at risk of serious diseases like measles and polio. Rapidly circulating misinformation around the topic of vaccination adds to this threat. 

In this context, this year’s campaign will aim to build solidarity and trust in vaccination as a public good that saves lives and protects health. To this end, we will be looking for more partners to join us, bringing people together in support of a lifesaving cause.
