Immunization is the process where by a person is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, typically by the administration of a vaccine. Vaccines stimulate the body’s own immune system to protect the person against subsequent infection or disease.
Immunization prevents illness, disability & death from vaccine-preventable diseases including cervical cancer, diphtheria, hepatitis B, measles, mumps, pertusis (whooping cough), pneumonia, polio, rotavirus diarrhoea, rubella and tetanus.
WORLD IMMUNIZATION WEEK [ 24 to 30 April,2018 ] is celebrated in the last week of April – aims to highlight the collective action needed to ensure that every person is protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. This year’s theme : “Protected together, #vaccinesWork”, encourages people at every level from donors to the general public to go further in their efforts to increase immunization coverage for the greater good.
