Child vaccination rates rise, but still below recommended threshold


The country sees rise in vaccinated children, but still below 95% recommended threshold, it was highlighted during the event marking the European Immunization Week (EIW) in Skopje’s City Park under the theme “Protecting Generations”.

The Macedonian Health Ministry highlights that measures and activities have been taken to enhance the coverage and accessibility of immunization.

For the first time, a field vaccination campaign is being implemented, involving all 34 healthcare centers. Teams of nurses and doctors will conduct field vaccinations and visit around three thousand families with unvaccinated children, focusing on vaccines that protect against whooping cough and measles.

Parents are urged to vaccinate their children because, as emphasized, only in this way can we achieve herd immunity. Vaccines are safe and protect against the most severe diseases, they said.
