ADULT IMMUNIZATION- WORLD IMMUNIZATION WEEK

World Immunization Week 2021 - Vaccines bring us closer 24 – 30 April 2021 World Immunization Week – celebrated every year in the last week of April – aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. Immunization saves millions of lives every year and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful health interventions. Yet, there are still nearly 20 million children in the world today who are not getting the vaccines they need, and many miss out on vital vaccines during adolescence, adulthood and into old age. Using the theme ‘Vaccines bring us closer’, World Immunization Week 2021 will urge greater engagement around immunization globally to promote the importance of vaccination in bringing people together, and improving the health and wellbeing of everyone, everywhere throughout life. As part of the 2021 campaign, WHO, partners and individuals around the world will unite to: Increase trust and confidence in vaccines to maintain or increase vaccine acceptance Increase investment in vaccines, including routine immunization, to remove barriers to access   While the world focuses on critically important new vaccines to protect against COVID-19, there remains a need to ensure routine vaccinations are not missed. Many children have not been vaccinated during the global pandemic, leaving them at risk of serious diseases like measles and polio. Rapidly circulating misinformation around the topic of vaccination adds to this threat.   In this context, this year’s campaign will aim to build solidarity and trust in vaccination as a public good that saves lives and protects health. To this end, we will be looking for more partners to join us, bringing people together in support of a lifesaving cause. Vaccines have brought us closer, and will bring us closer again For over 200 years, vaccines have protected us against diseases that threaten lives and prohibit our development. With their help, we can progress without the burden of diseases like smallpox and polio, which cost humanity hundreds of millions of lives Whilst vaccines aren't a silver bullet, they will help us progress on a path to a world where we can be together again.   Vaccines themselves continue to advance, bringing us closer to a world free from the likes of TB and cervical cancer, and ending suffering from childhood diseases like measles. Investment and new research is enabling groundbreaking approaches to vaccine development, which are changing the science of immunization forever, bringing us closer still to a healthier future. This is one year old video circulated at the onset of COVID-19 pandemic- to make people and doctors aware about Adult immunization in india which many of the doctors are not aware about it . At that time COVID-19 vaccination was not available- and it was presumed that people who are immunized against other diseases will lower the mortality of COVID-19 disease

Very true illustration of vaccination for adults and children. Only vaccination be solid weapons to fight with deadly and serious virus infectious disease like COVID-19, polio virus, hepatitis and other. Needs more awareness among the public and private sectors as populations living interior of villages where they are unable to get proper vaccination and immunizations. Thank you very much Sir for sharing this information to us.
