The European and World Immunization Week 2017
The European and World Immunization Week is held from 24 to 30 April 2017 under the global slogan Vaccines works - to protect health in all age groups. It is an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of vaccination and to emphasize the importance of this preventative measure, which has been proven to save lives around the world.
The National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) carries out awareness-raising campaign and information. There is still a lot of ignorance and misinformation about vaccination and it is important that we are informed.
For more information, see the NIJZ website.
Other important information can also be found on the website of the World Health Organization.
The Centre for Health and Development Murska Sobota agrees with theese ideas and would like to stress on the importance of vaccination and its implementation and we follow this year's slogan: Prevent. Protect. Vaccinate.
