Now more than ever, we recognize the importance of effective vaccines to protect against disease. As scientists work to develop one to protect all of us from the new coronavirus, we recognize how far we have come this World Immunization Week, April 24th - 30th, and encourage everyone to immunize their children and themselves against preventable diseases.

The Rotary Foundation has a long history of funding disease prevention and treatment projects that focus on health issues that impact vulnerable communities, like our polio eradication efforts. Successes in these areas have helped us address other global health challenges, including the spread of the coronavirus.
