For the first time ever, the Americas are united in a campaign for the health of our children. The first "Vaccination Week in the Americas" happens on the first week of June, and is an unprecedented effort to reach children who have not been vaccinated in indigenous communities, marginal urban areas, remote areas and frontier zones.

All countries in South America, plus Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Bahamas are set to participate in the campaign, called "An Act of Love."
