Immunizing Against Preventable Diseases

Using weakened or inactivated microorganisms to induce an immune response, vaccination is the main strategy for preventing illnesses.

Herd Immunity: Immunizing a large section of the population protects vulnerable people who cannot get vaccinations and limits disease transmission.

Childhood Immunisation: Early childhood immunisation regimes protect against measles, mumps, rubella, polio, and diphtheria.

Vaccinations against influenza, pneumonia, shingles, and other illnesses help adults avoid complications and minimize healthcare costs.

Travel vaccines like yellow fever and typhoid limit the spread of illnesses from one location to another.

For long-term protection, several vaccinations require booster doses. Boosters boost immunity, protecting against illnesses.

worldwide immunization Campaigns: WHO and UNICEF lead worldwide immunization campaigns to increase coverage, especially in disadvantaged areas.

Public Health Initiatives: To achieve universal immunization coverage, public health campaigns and educational initiatives refute myths, promote vaccination, and address vaccine reluctance.
