Global Immunization

Photo: A child being vaccinated.Increased immunization coverage around the world is a key reason why the number of children dying each year has fallen below 10 million for the first time in documented history. CDC is working to achieve and sustain several global immunization initiatives:

  • Eradicating polio
  • Achieving a global reduction of deaths resulting from measles and rubella
  • Ending epidemic meningitis in Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Accelerating the introduction of pneumococcal and rotavirus vaccines
  • Strengthening immunization systems in key countries through technical assistance, monitoring and evaluation, social mobilization, and vaccine distribution
