Global Immunization Division (GID)
A high level of vaccination coverage in a population group can interrupt the transmission and spread of VPDs by reducing the proportion of people who are susceptible to infection. The direct and indirect protection afforded by an effective national immunization program decreases the potential for VPDs to spread to other countries. Global efforts to achieve high immunization coverage can protect all countries, including the United States, against disease. Supporting global immunization efforts also helps to fulfill the U.S. government’s broader commitment to global health.
