National Immunization Awareness Month

Posted: Sunday, July 31, 2022, 5:04pm in:

August is National Immunization Month (NIAM). NIAM is a yearly observance in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages from infants to elderly. The goal of NIAM is to raise awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases.

Why are vaccines so important?

  • Vaccines protect against serious diseases.
  • These diseases still exist and outbreaks do occur.
  • Vaccines are recommended throughout our lives.
  • Vaccines are very safe.

Who needs vaccines? Everyone!

Use this month as an opportunity to ensure that routine vaccination is maintained even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Start preparing yourself for the 2021–22 flu season. And ensure you get a COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself and loved ones.
