Ministries of health
  • Organize vaccination campaigns.
  • Distribute posters and leaflets about vaccination to health centres.
  • Write articles about vaccination coverage in your country and what more needs to be done.
International organizations
  • Join forces to inform your constituents about global vaccination goals.
Community leaders
  • Organize discussion groups with local populations about available vaccines, their benefits and risks.
  • Get fully vaccinated: Check with your local health worker whether you are up-to-date with recommended vaccines. If not, make an appointment to get fully vaccinated.
