European Immunization Week 2023

The WHO European Region celebrates European Immunization Week (EIW) to raise awareness of the importance of immunization in preventing diseases and protecting life. This year’s campaign will work to improve vaccine uptake in the context of European Immunization Agenda 2030 and a global backslide in vaccination rates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The EIW materials and key messages will focus on re-engaging the general public on the importance of timely routine vaccination and catching up on any missed or postponed vaccines, and continue to emphasize the need for COVID-19 vaccination, especially among vulnerable groups.
