Immunization is one of the most successful and cost-effective health interventions and prevents between two and three million deaths every year globally. Immunization protects against diseases such as diphtheria, measles, pertussis (whooping cough), pneumonia, polio, rotavirus diarrhoea, rubella and tetanus. The benefits of immunization are increasingly being extended from infants to children, adolescents, adults, and older adults providing protection against life-threatening diseases such as influenza, meningitis, and cancer (cervical and liver).
Several materials are available for download - for countries who wish to make customized posters, announcements, etc. We will be uploading even more materials in the coming days leading to Immunization Week.
