COVID-19 and Routine Immunizations Alert
Routine childhood immunization services have experienced disruptions as a result of COVID-19. The World Health Organization has declared that as many as 80 million babies worldwide may miss out on life-saving vaccines this year, putting them at risk for measles, diphtheria, polio and other preventable diseases. Now more than ever, we need to ensure that children are protected from the diseases that we can prevent. Vaccines protect individuals, communities, and healthcare systems struggling to meet the unprecedented demands of the pandemic.
