World Immunization Week 2021 Webinar

Immunization Agenda 2030: Equitable Health Access for All

During World Immunization Week 2021, the International Vaccine Access Center, Shot@Life, and MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership will co-host a panel event 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 Wednesday, April 28 9:30-11:00am ET to find out and discuss how we can work together to ensure everyone, everywhere is protected by full immunization.
