We invite you to participate in Vaccination Week in the Americas 2018!

From April 21-28, 2018, the Region of the Americas will celebrate the 16th Vaccination Week in the Americas (VWA) campaign with a soccer theme, in honor of the 2018 World Cup that will take place in June-July 2018. The campaign slogan “Strengthen your defense! #GetVax #VaccinesWork” links strengthening defense on the soccer team with strengthening the body’s defense to vaccine-preventable diseases through vaccination.

Vaccines help your immune system fight more than 20 dangerous diseases. From the time we´re born, vaccines offer us protection to help us stay healthy throughout our entire lives.
