Christ the Redeemer lit up with vaccine message

The message ''Vaccine saves, United for vaccines,'' was projected on to the statue in an event promoted by the Unidos Pela Vacina (United by the Vaccine) movement in alliance with the Cristo Redentor Sanctuary and the Ogilvy Brazil advertising agency, to create awareness on the importance of immunization.

The movement Unidos Pela Vacina aims to draw the attention of Brazilians and the world on the importance of immunization.

More than 4,000 people have joined the movement and its 85,000 volunteers are working to eliminate obstacles and make vaccination reach every corner of Brazil as quickly as possible.
