author: Alfia Agliullina

The European immunization week will be held from April 26 to May 1, 2010, and Republic of Bashkortostan will join its actions too. As the news-service of Russian Agency for Health and Consumer Rights in RB reports, this wide-scaled action is held every year in all European countries, initiated by the World Health Organization’s European bureau.

Russian Federation, including Bashkortostan, joined the action in 2006. In 2010 it will be held for the fifth time. The main goal of the action is to raise the level of awareness about risks of infections and advantages of immunization through wide propaganda.
