On World Immunization Week, people are being asked to learn more about vaccines, check their immunization status and get a shot if needed.

In the last week of April every year, the event takes place to remind families and communities how effective vaccines can be and to encourage people to get immunized against deadly and debilitating diseases.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is helping countries deliver this information directly to people's mobile phones and social media accounts.
