An immunization week in Europe will begin from April 24, said the Health Protection Agency (HPA) of North West. The immunization week will be organized by the WHO (World Health Organization).
The campaign will be held for promoting the benefits of immunization and to improve the fragile health system.
Doctors are trying to make parents and caregivers of kids aware on the importance of immunization, and they are telling them to put efforts to vaccinate their kids. Doctors have urged for help from parents to terminate diseases such as measles and rubella by the end of 2015.
Dr. Sam Ghebrehewet, HPA North West’s immunization lead, said that immunization has helped in eliminating smallpox and polio from Europe and also declined the percentage of Group C meningococcal infection, diphtheria, and tetanus.
He said that immunization is an effective method for the health and it prevents from many diseases and also decreases the death rates. The process of immunization helps through vaccinating an infectious orgasm.
Dr. Ghebrehewet added, "There is no doubt that the WHO target of eliminating measles and rubella from Europe by 2015 can be met if we can persuade parents to ensure all children and young people are protected by two doses of MMR vaccine”.
