World Immunization Week Celebrated at Nuffield Health Centre


Nuffield health centre celebrated World Immunization Week in Tamavua on Thursday 26 th April. It is celebrated in the last week of April. According to WHO, this year’s theme — ‘Protected Together, #VaccinesWork’ encourages people to put in more efforts to increase immunization coverage for the greater good.

Immunization is the process by which a person is made resistant to an infectious disease through the use of a vaccine. It stimulates the natural disease fighting system of the body to protect the person against subsequent infection of a disease.

Therefore World Immunization Week highlights that vaccination sure reaches anyone and everyone that
needs it the most. Public health nurse Shiva Anjali says that they strive to immunize each and every child within their community (zone) which is from Tamavua to Colo-I- Suva corridor.
