Childhood vaccinations save an estimated 4 million lives worldwide every year.

Yet 1 in 5 children are missing lifesaving immunizations that protect them from dangerous diseases. During World Immunization Week, learn more about the lifesaving power of vaccines.
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted health systems globally, key among these was the negative impact on immunization coverage with lockdowns and loss of preventive health services. This included the loss of essential vaccination for vaccine-preventable diseases in millions of children across the world.
With the restoration of health services, travel and social activities, the theme for this year’s World Immunization Week 2023, the “Big Catch-Up” is apt! 2023 presents a great opportunity to “catch up” on essential vaccination particularly in children to achieve lost gains in the fight against vaccine-preventable diseases.
