August is National Immunization Awareness Month

How can National Immunization Awareness Month make a difference? 

August is National Immunization Awareness month. Raise awareness about vaccines and share strategies to increase immunization rates with our community.

Here are just a few ideas:

  • Talk to friends and family members about how vaccines aren’t just for kids. People of all ages can get shots to protect them from serious diseases.
  • Encourage people in your community to get the flu vaccine every year.
  • Invite a doctor or nurse to speak to parents about why it’s important for all kids to get vaccinated.
