Introduction

Get ready to celebrate World Immunisation Day on Nov. 10 and learn about the importance of vaccination! This day was established in 2012 by the World Health Organization as a way to raise awareness about the value of immunization for all people, regardless of age or location. Vaccines help protect us from deadly diseases such as polio, tetanus, pertussis and measles that can have devastating consequences if left untreated. So let's come together and spread knowledge far and wide so everyone can be protected against these illnesses!
