Immunization: Think BIG
Help UNICEF save more lives
UNICEF, the world's largest buyer of vaccines, provides immunizations for more than one third of the world's children. Since 1980, UNICEF has helped quadruple global immunization rates for children, saving countless lives. Today, vaccination saves up to 3 million children's lives a year.

Vaccinating one child saves a life. Vaccinating every child stops disease in its tracks.
Immunization By the Numbers
Your Dollars Do More with UNICEF
In 2011, UNICEF began publishing the price it paid for every vaccine it buys. The action helped to drive prices down.
UNICEF's tremendous reach also gives it a unique ability to negotiate with manufacturers and obtain the lowest possible prices for lifesaving vaccines.
Projected cost savings of nearly $500 million on the new rotavirus vaccine, for example, will allow UNICEF to immunize an additional 50 million children by 2015.
Vaccinate One Child, Vaccinate Every Child
A 2012 campaign against measles and rubella in Mongolia reached from the capital, Ulan Bator, into the country's most remote areas and immunized over 95 percent of the targeted children.
Support Our Immunization Work
Almost a third of deaths among children under five are vaccine-preventable.
Help us reach every child, everywhere. Join UNICEF and Believe in ZERO preventable child deaths.
UNICEF has helped:
- cut measles deaths 71% since 2000
- eliminate polio in 122 countries since 1988
- roll out a new vaccine against the top killer of children under five — pneumonia
Children at risk:
- Almost 1 out of 5 children still go unvaccinated
- Over 400 children a day still die of measles
- 70% of unreached children live in just 10 countries
Partnerships are invaluable in our fight to reach a day when ZERO children die from vaccine-preventable diseases.
