Did you know it’s World Immunization Week?
24th to 30th April 2018
Despite my youthful looks (tongue-in-cheek), I remember only too well my early days on the wards in the UK as a junior doctor in the mid to late 80’s before many of the Immunizations we use today, seeing children in huge distress and dying from illnesses that are preventable today due to advances in immunisation. Consequently, I encourage everybody to learn more about immunisation, including busting the myths around it, especially during World Immunization Week.
