National Infant Immunization Week
National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is April 24-30, 2022. NIIW is an annual observance to highlight the positive impact of vaccination on the lives of infants and children. Following disruptions from COVID-19, continue to encourage families to stay on track for children’s routine checkups and vaccinations. On-time vaccination is critical to help provide protection against 14 diseases with recommended childhood vaccinations. Talk to your child’s doctor to make sure they are on track with routinely recommended vaccinations. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/visit/vaccination-during-COVID-19.html
COVID-19 has caused many disruptions in families’ lives – and in some cases, it has meant that children have missed or delayed their wellness checkups and vaccination, which are a critical part of ensuring children stay healthy. CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that children stay on track with their well-child appointments and routine vaccinations.
For providers: This National Infant Immunization Week, make sure your little patients are on track with routinely recommended vaccinations. Get resources for talking with parents about vaccinations. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/conversations/conv-materials.html
