“Vaccines save millions of children’s lives every year. This message about the effectiveness of vaccination needs to be understood by all, including children. Therefore we support innovative ways to reach parents and children. More particularly we appeal to parents to seek information from trusted sources and protect their children in their very first months oflife before they are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases,” said Christine Jaulmes, UNICEF Representative in Kyrgyzstan.
