During the World Immunization Week, held annually in the last week of April, professors from the Department of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology of IFNMU reminded about the importance of immunization and the peculiarities of vaccination.

 According to the Ministry of Health, the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the full-scale invasion by the Russian Federation have put additional strain on our healthcare system. The vaccination rate has significantly decreased. However, it is important to remember that vaccination will help you maintain your health.

In Ukraine, the National Immunization Schedule includes vaccination against 10 diseases: hepatitis B, tuberculosis, poliomyelitis, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), measles, rubella, and mumps.

Furthermore, healthcare workers urge Ukrainians to undergo additional vaccination against diseases that are not included in the primary list but are also dangerous. This includes immunization against coronavirus, vaccination against influenza, and other diseases.
