WHO: Immunization week
The European Immunization Week (EIW) is taking place from 23-29 April 2018.
The objective of EIW 2018 is to sustain momentum toward a European Region free of vaccine-preventable diseases by raising awareness of the importance of vaccination as an individual right and a shared responsibility. Every person deserves to be protected from vaccine-preventable diseases and plays a vital role in protecting others by choosing to vaccinate.
European Immunization Week is a Region-wide initiative, led and coordinated by the WHO Regional Office for Europe in collaboration with key stakeholders in the Region. The goal of EIW is to raise awareness of the importance of immunization and to increase vaccination coverage.
