Immunization is the process of making a person immune or resistant to an infectious disease, usually by the use of a vaccine. Immunization helps to protect a youngster from infections that might be fatal. It also aids in the prevention of illness transmission to others. Vaccines work by stimulating the body’s own immune system to safeguard the person from illness or sickness in the future. Babies are born with some innate immunity that their mothers pass on to them through breast-feeding. As the baby’s immune system develops, his or her immunity begins to wane. Immunization is one of the most cost-effective health interventions, and it does not necessitate a significant change in lifestyle.

During its May 2012 conference, the World Health Assembly supported World Immunization Week.

Previously, different dates in different parts of the world were recognized for Immunization Week events. For the first time in 2012, more than 180 countries and territories throughout the world celebrated World Immunization Week at the same time.

World Immunization Week is a global public health campaign aimed at increasing vaccine knowledge and immunisation rates against vaccine-preventable diseases. Every year in the last week of April, it takes place.

From infancy until old age, vaccination can protect against 25 distinct infectious agents or diseases, including diphtheria, measles, pertussis, polio, tetanus, and COVID-19. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), active immunisation prevents 2 to 3 million lives per year. However, 22.6 million infants worldwide, especially in developing nations, are still without essential vaccines. Limited resources, conflicting health objectives, poor management of health systems, and inadequate surveillance are all factors that contribute to low vaccine coverage rates. The purpose of World Immunization Week is to create public awareness about how immunisation saves lives and to encourage people all around the world to acquire the immunizations they need to protect themselves and their children from fatal diseases.

The idea for a week-long immunisation awareness commemoration arose from initiatives taking place across many countries and areas. World Immunization Week, along with World Health Day, World Tuberculosis Day, World Malaria Day, World Patient Safety Day, World Hepatitis Day, World Blood Donor Day, World No Tobacco Day, World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, World Chagas Disease Day, and World AIDS Day, is one of the WHO’s eleven official campaigns.
