World Immunization Week and World Malaria Day

World Immunization Week and World Malaria Day

Observe World Immunization Week and World Malaria Day.

Yesterday, April 24th, marked the beginning of this year’s World Immunization Week.  World Immunization Week is dedicated to highlighting the collective action needed to ensure that every person is protected from vaccine-preventable diseases.  This year’s theme is “Protected Together, #VaccinesWork.”  Additionally, today marks World Malaria Day, a day that looks to increase awareness for the preventative measures that people can take to reduce their chances of contracting malaria.  This year’s World Malaria Day theme is “End Malaria for Good.”  In honor of both World Immunization Week and World Malaria Day, let’s all take preventative measures to care for our health.

Get Vaccinated

It is our responsibility to make sure that we and our loved ones are all up to date with our immunizations and vaccines.  Not only does this protect us from vaccine-preventable diseases but getting vaccinated also helps to protect those who cannot be immunized, such as babies, young children, and the elderly.

Prevent Bug Bites

For those of us who live in areas with a lot of mosquitos, it’s important that we take precautions to protect against getting bit.  Even if we do not live in an area affected by malaria, mosquitos are known to carry any number of dangerous diseases.  To protect ourselves we should use insecticide and sleep under mosquito nets if necessary.

These are the preventative measures that we should take in honor of World Immunization Week and World Malaria Day.  Join us at  The Maria Sanchez Show as we take care of our health.  Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown.  Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PST/7:00 p.m. EST.
