Each year, the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes World Immunization Week during the last week of April. For 2020, the theme was #VaccinesWork for All, and the WHO focused its awareness campaign on, “how vaccines as well as the people who develop, deliver and receive them are . . . champions by working to protect the health of everyone, everywhere.”
Free Resources from the WHO for Raising Awareness about the Benefits of Vaccines
Along with encouraging educators and health care providers to raise awareness about the benefits of vaccination, the WHO publishes a number of free resources to help promote World Immunization Week as well. Here is an overview of some of the resources from World Immunization Week 2020:
For parents and other adults, it is important to have an accurate understanding of the benefits of vaccination—not just for ourselves, but for others as well. It is also important to understand the risks, as a number of illnesses and injuries are linked to vaccines. While these illnesses and injuries are relatively rare, they can potentially lead to serious complications for those who are diagnosed; and, in the United States, individuals who are diagnosed with vaccine-related illnesses and injuries can seek financial compensation under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
