World Immunization Week

World Immunization Week is a global health campaign that seeks to raise awareness around the significance of immunization and to encourage people to get vaccinated. 

Each year the movement assigns a theme for the week and this year’s is The Big Catch-Up. The goal of the theme is to emphasize the need for everyone to get vaccinated for preventable diseases. 

World Immunization Week

The Campaign Goals from the World Health Organization

Each April, World Immunization Weeks brings people together from around the world to highlight the importance of the vaccines and how they protect people of all ages against many diseases. 

This year World Immunization Week will be celebrated on April 24th to April 30th. 

The Campaign is referred to as The Big Catch-Up due in part to the two years of immunization backsliding caused by COVID-19 disruptions. The goal is to restore and strengthen immunization services to reach the millions of people missing out on the life-saving benefits of vaccines and stop outbreaks from occurring.
