World Immunization Week – “Long Life for All

Protecting more people and more communities from vaccine-preventable diseases is the ultimate goal of world immunization week.

World Immunization Week is celebrated worldwide in the last week of April, to highlight the collective action required and to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all age groups against disease. 

World Immunization Week: History

In May 2012, the World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of the WHO, endorsed World Immunization Week. Before 2012, Immunization Week activities were observed on different dates in different regions of the world. The world’s first “World Immunization Week” was observed in 2012, which witnessed the simultaneous participation of more than 180 countries and territories worldwide.

Vaccines have been indiscriminately saving lives since 1796. The first Smallpox immunization was a fight back against disease.

World Immunization Week: Significance

World Immunization Week highlights the importance of vaccines and how immunization helps protect people from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Every year, during World Immunization Week, the World Health Organization (WHO) works with countries across the globe to raise awareness of the value of vaccines and immunization and ensures that governments obtain the necessary guidance and technical support to implement high-quality Immunization programmes. Protecting more people and more communities from vaccine-preventable diseases is the ultimate goal of World Immunization Week.

World Immunization Week 2022: Theme

The theme for World Immunization Week 2022 is “Long Life for All”, which aims to unify people around the idea that vaccines make it possible for everyone to follow their dreams, to protect their loved ones, and to live a long, healthy life.

Every opportunity should be sought to vaccinate children and adults as per the routine immunization calendar. All WHO pre-qualified vaccines are safe and efficient.  

Vaccines provide opportunity and hope for all of us to enjoy a more fulfilling life. ​And that’s something we should all be fighting for.​
