Immunization Awareness Month

Posted by on August 9th, 2017 Posted in: Children and Teens, Public Health


The importance of immunizations and health is a year ’round topic, but August, especially, is a good time to promote awareness. The National Immunization Awareness Month Toolkit, available from the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, includes plans for taking action, such as: articles to share, sample tweets, suggested newsletter items, ideas for community events, and a badge to add to your web page. By raising awareness about the importance of vaccines, we can all work together to help prevent serious illnesses and diseases.
