Working to prevent infectious diseases and protect health.
The World Health Organisation says:
“The two public health interventions that have had the greatest impact on the world’s health are clean water and vaccines”.
Few medical interventions can compare with the enormous benefits of immunisation – one of the safest and most cost-effective ways to protect health.
Thanks to the NHS and its national immunisation programmes, people are now protected against many dangerous diseases. Through vaccination, we don’t see these diseases as often as we used to. But they can still be as deadly if immunisation uptake rates are not sufficiently high.
