Overview

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 thousands of children every year in Pakistan and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful health interventions. 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 polio.

Following the World Health Organization theme, ‘Vaccines bring us closer’, our foundation is collaborating with EPI Punjab & Sindh and Milkar.com to celebrate the World Immunization Week together.
