In-kind contributions provide services to nonprofits like the Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin) that would otherwise be unaffordable, freeing up scarce resources to be spent on our core mission – expanding the benefits of immunization around the world.

Over the course of the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to exploit preexisting inequities.

The vaccine research and development (R&D) ecosystem has yielded life-saving products for decades by leveraging innovation, collaboration, and partnership; but the rapid development of COVID-19 vaccines illustrated that even more is possible when the right circumstances are in place to catalyze progress.
As the world celebrates World Immunization Week with the theme “Vaccines Bring us Closer,” Sabin’s Vaccine Acceptance & Demand initiative and Boost Community recognize the vital work health care workers and immunization professionals in low- and middle-income countries are doing to bring their communities closer to a world free from vaccine-preventable diseases.
