Immunisation Week 30 April – 6 May


Immunisation Week (30 April - 6 May) is celebrated worldwide. The theme of this year's week is immunisation throughout the lifespan.

National Immunisation Week is about raising awareness of the importance of immunisation to protect against serious illnesses. This year's theme is promoting immunisation for older people (namely influenza, shingles, tetanus and diphtheria) and encouraging immunisation across the lifespan.

The week is an opportunity to celebrate the role of all health professionals working with older people, pregnant women, infants, young children, teenagers and parents to help keep our community well and healthy. 

If you'd like to promote Immunisation Week, check out the Health Promotion Agency digital communications toolkit. Designed to help support planning and promotions, you'll find key messages, resources, design files, videos, Facebook content and more.
