2022 World Immunization Week - Long Life For All

Did You Know?

The last week of April is World Immunization Week. A global public health effort by leading health organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The World Health Organization (WHO), and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the goal of World Immunization Week is for more people – and their communities – to be protected from vaccine-preventable diseases.

It is always better to prevent a disease than to treat it after it occurs. Vaccines provide us immunity from disease and help keep our communities safe. There are many benefits to vaccines.

Below are 5 benefits to getting immunizations:

  1. Immunizations can save your child’s life
  2. Vaccination is safe and effective
  3. Immunization protects others you care about
  4. Immunizations can save your family time and money
  5. Immunization protects future generations

At Healthcare Highways, you have preventive services available at no cost to you as a health plan member. We encourage you to take full advantage of your preventive care benefits and other available wellness resources such as immunizations and screening tests.
