This year’s World Immunization Week (WIW) campaign which takes place from 24-30 April asks “Are you up-to-date?” with your immunizations. The WIW 2014 campaign efforts will focus on providing families with the information they need to make informed decisions about vaccination. The global slogan is “Immunize for a healthy future – Know. Check. Protect”. The campaign website in the 6 official languages is now live. An online, multilingual toolbox which allows campaign supporters to build their own posters, choosing from different visuals is also available. Help us spread the word by choosing a poster from our online, multilingual toolbox. Print, post in your office, school, or health-care centre, and share on social media to make this year’s campaign truly global. Don't forget to register any WIW events that you are planning on our campaign website at and encourage people in your networks to do so too.

Immunize for a healthy future: Know, Check, Protect. This is the message of this year’s World Immunization Week, on 24-30 April. This short video encourages you to ask your local health clinic which vaccines you need, check whether your vaccinations are up-to-date, and to get the vaccines you need, when you need them.

A feature story focusing on a mobile app for vaccination reminders is now live on the campaign website. The app, developed by the WHO Office in the European Region, contains information on vaccines, the diseases they prevent and the immunization schedule of the country where it will be made available. Parents who download it just put in the names and dates of birth of their children and their phone sends them a reminder each time a new immunization is due, even offering them the option of dialing the doctor’s number with one click. The first countries to pilot national versions of the app will be Estonia, Hungary and Romania, under a project coordinated by the Republic of Moldova. These countries’ apps should be available for the public to download around the time of World Immunization Week (also European Immunization Week)—in the last week of April 2014. Read the feature story. More information on World Immunization Week (24-30 April). More information on European Immunization Week (22 to 26 April).
