It’s National Immunization Awareness Month!
August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). This annual observance highlights the importance of getting recommended vaccines throughout your life. You have the power to protect yourself and your family against serious diseases like whooping cough, cancers caused by HPV, and pneumonia with vaccines. During NIAM, Patricia encourages you to talk to your doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional to ensure you, your child and family are up to date on recommended vaccines.
