Yesterday, The Sarajevo Medical School students attended an exclusive online lecture under the title “Communicating about Vaccines in a Fact-Resistant World” held by a renowned expert and a scientist in the field, Prof. dr. Saad B. Omer.
With the help of University SSST professor, Dr. Sanjin Musa we organized this lecture in the light of the upcoming World/European Immunization Week 2019. The event aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. Immunization saves millions of lives every year and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions. Yet, there are still nearly 20 million unvaccinated and under-vaccinated children in the world today.
