World Immunization Week
Originally shared by United Nations
It’s World Immunization Week!
Are you and your family getting all the vaccines you need?
Many people aren’t.
Vaccines save lives. But around the world, 1 in 5 children miss out on immunization. So, each year, 1.5 million children die of preventable diseases like diphtheria, tetanus, and measles — and million of adults are not protected form killer diseases like hepatitis.
It’s time to close the gap. Learn more here from World Health Organization (WHO): http://www.who.int/campaigns/immunization-week/2016/event/en/
