Alongside a group of diverse organizations, Shot@Life is a part of the Immunisation for All Ages (IFAA) initiative, which is working to combat inequity and improve access to immunization to help promote health throughout life, to preserve function, and to help prevent death and disability. Even prior to the pandemic, the IFAA called upon national and international health and advocacy organizations and governments to:
– Prioritize immunization throughout life as a key pillar of expanded prevention strategies and a central component of universal health coverage.
– Remove barriers to access for appropriate immunization throughout life to ensure all people are protected and no one is left behind.
– Reduce inequities in timely, appropriate, and affordable access to immunization throughout life.
