FOUR IMMUNIZATION INNOVATIONS THAT ARE SAVING CHILDREN'S LIVESby The Daily Eye Team May 4 2016, 6:46 pm Estimated Reading Time: 0 mins, 32 secs
One of the things I like most about spring is that my 52-week-a-year job gets extra attention for one full week: World Immunization Week.
Each year, the World Health Organization uses the last week of April to turn attention to saving lives through immunization.
This year, the week's theme is Close the Immunization Gap, centering on the need to reach the 1.5 million children who still don't receive the life-saving vaccines they need. Though reaching every child on the planet is ambitious, we know it makes communities healthier and stronger and, most important, saves and improves the lives of people everywhere.
