This event coincides with World Immunization Week 2023 (April 24 to 30)
World Immunization Week seeks to highlight the collective action needed to protect people from vaccine-preventable diseases. Journalists have a critical role in countering vaccine hesitancy and promoting life course immunization!
Every year, vaccines save millions of lives, and protect millions more from disease and disability. While many people are aware of routine vaccination availability for children to prevent many serious infectious diseases, like polio and measles, the complexities of delivering vaccination beyond the first year of life poses additional challenges for public health systems.
Featuring prominent immunization experts from the Balkan region of Europe, in conversation with local journalists. Stay tuned for more information on @InternewsHJN
