World Immunisation Week 2014

World Immunization Week – celebrated in the last week of April (24-30) – aims to promote one of the world’s most powerful tools for health – the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease.

The theme of the World Immunization Week 2014 campaign is “Are you up-to-date?”. The slogan and calls to action to be used on global materials are “Immunize for a healthy future – Know. Check. Protect.”

  • how, where and when you should get vaccinated
  • where you can go to find out more

Check

  • whether you and family have had all the vaccines you need
  • when you need booster doses
  • whether you need any vaccines before travelling

Protect

  • yourself and your family: get vaccinated
