With all eyes on vaccines, World Immunization Week 2021 offers an unprecedented opportunity to build public trust in the value of all vaccines and help build long-term support for immunization.

In particular, World Immunization Week 2021 will aim to:

  • Reframe the global vaccine conversation to focus on the importance of vaccines
  • Highlight the many ways in which vaccines enable us to live healthy, productive lives by preventing the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases
  • Demonstrate social proof that the broader public already values and trust vaccines
  • This year’s campaign looks to build solidarity and trust in vaccination as a public good that saves lives and protects health. To this end, we will be seeking more partners to join us, bringing people together in support of a lifesaving cause.

During World Immunization Week 2021, the International Vaccine Access Center will co-host a panel event with [email protected] to highlight how COVID-19 has exposed and exacerbated global health inequities, and how the new Immunization Agenda 2030 Framework for Action charts a path to equitable immunization coverage for everyone. 

Prior to the pandemic, more children than ever before had been immunized. At the same time, far too many were left behind; nearly 14 million children never received any vaccinations.

Although COVID-19 has taken a massive toll on the world, it is time to look not just at the challenges but also at the opportunities. Now is the time to energize a global movement and collective accountability to make vaccines equitably accessible to everyone. The Immunization Agenda 2030 creates a clear vision of a world where everyone, everywhere, at every age fully benefits from vaccines for good health and well-being. Diseases do not respect borders, and neither should our fight for full global immunization.

Our esteemed panel of advocates and immunization experts will take a hard look at what it will take to make that vision a reality in the next decade: How will gaps in immunization coverage and equity be addressed, especially among marginalized and disadvantaged groups in low- and middle-income countries? How will immunization systems identify children who have never been vaccinated, ensuring they don’t miss out on protection from deadly disease?

Join us to find out and discuss how we can work together to ensure everyone, everywhere is protected by full immunization.

Panelists:
Ann Lindstrand, Unit Head of the EPI and the Department of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals at WHO
Chizoba Wonodi, Nigeria Country Director at IVAC and Immunization Director for USAID's MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership project
Martha Rebour, ED of the UN Foundation’s [email protected] campaign
Lubna Hashmat, CEO of the Civil Society Human and Institutional Development Programme
