National Immunization Awareness Month

Posted on August 05, 2019

It’s National Immunization Awareness Month!

August is National Immunization Awareness Month. This annual observance highlights the importance of getting recommended vaccines throughout your life. You have the power to protect yourself and your family against serious diseases like whooping cough, measles and cancers caused by HPV, with vaccines.

During NIAM, NVHD encourages you talk to your doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional to ensure you, your child, and family are up to date on recommended vaccines.
You are encouraged to visit CDC’s Interactive Vaccine Guide, which provides information on the vaccines recommended during pregnancy and throughout your child’s life. Just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean you don’t need vaccines. Please visit CDC’s adult vaccine assessment tool to see which vaccines might be right for you.

During NIAM, NVHD will be sharing information and resources on social media to highlight the importance of vaccines. Each week in August will focus on a different population: infants/babies, preteens/teens, pregnant women and adults.

Help us spread the word! Follow the conversation on Facebook @NaugatuckValleyHD, Twitter @NaugValleyHD and Instagram @naugatuckvalleyhd, and use #ivax2protect to share why you choose to vaccinate.
