Immunization is one of the most cost-effective health interventions. Vaccines do not only prevent millions of infant deaths, but globally they also give children a chance to improve their life prospects.
The European Immunization Week campaign launches two new interactive tools:
How many children are born in Finland every year? How many doctor visits are made in health centres? What is the level of expenditure on social protection and health care in Finland? Statistical reports are published every year from THL's comprehensive statistical and register data. Statistical data are also available in several statistical databases. The release dates for all statistical publications are listed in the publication calendar.
