It’s World Immunization Week! Celebrated in the last week of April, World Immunization Week aims to highlight the importance of global collective action and promotes the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. This year’s theme, “Long Life for All” aims to unify people around the idea that vaccines make it possible for us to follow our dreams, protect our loved ones and live a long, healthy life.
Vaccines are one of the most cost-effective and successful ways to promote wellbeing and save lives lost due preventable diseases. Yet, inequalities in the access, distribution, supply, and manufacture of vaccines see many people in Canada and around the world face barriers to vaccination, with marginalized populations affected most. This World Immunization Week, see how global partnerships can help promote access to vaccines.
