European Immunization Week (EIW) promotes the core message that immunization of every child is vital to prevent diseases and protect life. The slogan – Prevent. Protect. Immunize. – carries this message across the Region.
The next European Immunization Week will be celebrated on 23–29 April 2017, in conjunction with other WHO regional initiatives and World Immunization Week.
The goal of EIW is to increase vaccination coverage by raising awareness of the importance of immunization among parents and caregivers, health care professionals, policy and decision-makers, and the media.
