Behind every public health achievement are extraordinary scientists, researchers and advocates. For the past 21 years at the Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin), we have honored these distinguished leaders through the Albert B.

With the slogan “Immunization for a healthy future. Know, Check, Protect” WHO reminds us this week that vaccines prevent 2-3 million deaths each year. Just imagine this: 2 to 3 million lives. This equals the populations of countries like Mongolia or Botswana.
