National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is a yearly observance highlighting the importance of protecting children two years and younger from vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs).  It’s also a time to showcase the achievements of immunization programs and their partners in promoting healthy communities. The CDC has created a full range of messaging in various formats, from social media to coloring pages to training, to support the work of healthcare providers assisting families in learning about vaccines and the importance of staying on track with routinely recommended vaccinations.
