Immunizations For Greece's
Most Vulnerable Children
Through your support, Greek schoolchildren like this young boy will receive the immunizations he needs to protect his health and his access to school come September. (Photo credit: MDM/Greece)
No shots, no school is the policy in Greece for school admittance. For unemployed and uninsured parents, the price tag for their children’s immunizations may be too steep to pay, leaving young children out of school and in jeopardy of contracting serious illnesses. IOCC is providing immunizations for underprivileged children at a clinic in Thessaloniki. The series of immunizations will ensure that come fall, these children will join their friends at school to continue their learning. The immunizations are part of a larger response by IOCC to provide healthcare to vulnerable children and elderly in Greece.
