#VaccinesWork to bring us closer With the theme ‘Vaccines bring us closer’, World Immunization Week 2021 (April 24th-30th) will show how vaccination connects us to the people, goals and moments that matter to us most, helping improve the health of everyone, everywhere throughout life.

2021 has been designated as the International Year of Health and Care Workers (YHCW) in appreciation and gratitude for their unwavering dedication in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. WHO is launching a year-long campaign, under the theme – Protect. Invest. Together.  It highlights the urgent need to invest in health workers for shared dividends in health, jobs, economic opportunity and equity. This year, we are calling on your support and action to ensure that our health and care workforces are supported, protected, motivated and equipped to deliver safe health care at all times, not only during COVID-19. Today, we ask that you to add your voice to those calling for additional investments in health and care workers.

Science in 5 is WHO’s conversations in science. In this video and audio series published every week WHO experts explain scientific concepts related to COVID-19. Keep updated with the latest science through WHO’s YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn channels and on major podcast platforms. Stay safe, stay healthy and stick with science!
