European Immunization Week

22–26 April 2014

European Immunization Week (EIW) promotes the core message that the immunization of every child is vital to prevent diseases and protect life. The slogan – "Prevent. Protect. Immunize." – carries this message across the WHO European Region. The goal is to increase vaccination coverage by raising awareness of the importance of immunization.

"Immunization for life" will be the theme of EIW 2014, to take place from 22 to 26 April. Activities in the Region will focus on all age groups – reminding parents to vaccinate their children but also underlining the importance of maintaining personal protection from preventable diseases throughout the life course.
