World Immunization Week is celebrated annually during the last week of April. The goal is to promote the use of vaccines to help protect people of all ages against disease. Vaccines protect both children and adults and save millions of lives every year.

You can help! Be a vaccine hero and promote the importance of vaccines.

  • Make sure you and your family are vaccinated on time, every time.
  • Traveling? Know before you go. Make sure your family’s vaccines are up to date.
  • Talk to people about the benefits of vaccines.
  • Know the facts. Any licensed vaccine has been rigorously tested before use to make sure it is safe and effective for you and your family.

Vaccines save lives. Vaccines protect communities. Vaccines prevent serious illness and disability.

If you have questions regarding vaccines, talk to Delaware County Public Health at 563-927-7551 or reach out to your healthcare provider. They would be happy to answer any questions you have.
