Vaccinations save the lives of 2 to 3 million people every year, including children. Yet 1 child dies every 20 seconds from a disease that could have been prevented by a vaccine. Why? Because 1 in 5 children in the world do not have access to the life-saving immunizations that keep children healthy.

What is Grand Rounds?
Thank you for your interest in CDC Public Health Grand Rounds. The goal of Grand Rounds is to share some of the important work that CDC is doing in the United States and around the world to save lives and protect people. Each Grand Rounds session is the result of a rigorous process which takes months to prepare. This attention to detail ensures that our audiences receive up-to-date, scientifically accurate and usable information, whether they are clinicians, researchers, students of public health, medicine and nursing, or the public that we serve.
