August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). This annual observance highlights the efforts of healthcare professionals to protect patients of all ages against vaccine-preventable diseases through on-time vaccination.
During NIAM, we encourage you to ensure your patients are up-to-date on recommended vaccines. Research has consistently shown that healthcare professionals are the most trusted source of vaccine information for parents and patients.
Access CDC educational resources for patients and parents about the benefits of vaccinations, for healthcare professionals to have successful vaccine conversations with parents and patients. CDC also has vaccination guidance during COVID-19 pandemic available.
