The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) is marking World Immunization Week 2017, which falls on the last week of April every year.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), immunization saves millions of lives and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions.

Today, there are still 19.4 million unvaccinated and under-vaccinated children in the world.

To celebrate this week, the Primary Health Care Sector is holding a health exhibition, which will be taking place until April 30 under the slogan ‘Vaccines Work’.
