World Immunisation Week

This week is World Immunisation Week.

To mark this year’s awareness raising event, which is organised by the World Health Organisation to promote the role of vaccines in protecting people from disease, we have produced a short explainer on the history of vaccines. Find out when and how they were invented, and learn more about the role Directors of Public Health have in ensuring that all people, regardless of their age or background, or where they live, have access to these life saving medicines.
