August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). It is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. NIAM was established to encourage people of all ages to make sure they are up to date on the vaccines recommended for them. Communities have continued to use the month each year to raise awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases.
Each week of #NIAM16 focuses on a different stage of the lifespan:
People of all ages can protect their health with timely vaccination.
Adults (Aug. 1-7)
Pregnant women (Aug. 8-14)
Babies and young children (Aug. 15-21)
Preteens and teens (Aug. 22-28)
