World Immunization Week


World Immunization Week, celebrated in the last week of April each year, aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people against diseases.

  • To prevent disease-related complications, including paralysis (or monoplegia), hearing loss, or brain damage.
  • To maintain the public health, and control diseases in the community.

Official Date:
  • Globally: April 24th to 30th, 2019
  • Locally: Sha‘ban 19th to 25th, 1440H.

  • Demonstrate the value of vaccines for the health of children, communities, and the whole world.
  • Redress the misconception/myths about immunization.
