Ethiopia, 2005: Are you up-to-date? From 24 to 30 April, World Immunization Week 2014 urges everyone to ask this question for themselves and their children. Immunization protects against the suffering caused by vaccine-preventable diseases and saves 2–3 million lives each year. But staying up-to-date on inoculations is critical to ensure lasting immunity. A health worker administers a dose of oral polio vaccine to a baby, in Tigray Region.
