Vaccination Week in the Americas

April 20-27
Measles vaccination campaign

International Health Days are commemorations that call the attention of the public on one public health issue; for most of them, in this section the reader will find a selection of published manuscripts with links to the full-text papers.

Immunization programs promote the health and wealth of nations. Vaccination contributes to improved population health, which may potentially translate into lasting, positive impacts on the economy.

Vaccination Week in the Americas is an annual public health campaign by the member states of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) to promote equity and access to immunization.
