To commemorate the upcoming World Immunisation Week, we’re joining PATH and partners in the #ProtectingKids blog series. The series features personal stories about the lifesaving impact of vaccines at home and abroad. Check back here at Vaccines Work this week to read our contributions!
We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that vaccines work, but stories can be more powerful and persuasive than statistics. From the Protecting Kids series page:
This much we know: around the globe, people want their children to have healthy, productive, and full lives. More than anything, they want to protect their kids.
We’ve witnessed the desire to protect a child. We’ve seen how parents and families react when they’re told a miraculous new vaccine can give them the power to fight a disease. The commitment of health workers who will stop at nothing on their quest to deliver it.
We hope you’ll celebrate these stories with us – and share your own! Follow and join the conversation at #ProtectingKids.
