August is National Immunization Awareness Month!

Promote the importance of immunizations with this communications toolkit put together by the National Public Health Information Coalition and the CDC.  The 2015 edition contains key messages, vaccine information, sample news releases and articles, sample social media messages, links to web resources from CDC and other organizations, and logos, web banners, posters and graphics to use with social media.

Each week of August, a different group will be featured:
• Week 1 (Aug. 2–8)—Preteens and Teens: Ensure a healthy future with vaccines
• Week 2 (Aug. 9–15)—Pregnant Women: Protect yourself and pass protection on to your baby
• Week 3 (Aug. 16–22)—Adults: Vaccines are not just for kids
• Week 4 (Aug. 23–30)—Infants and Children: A healthy start begins with on-time vaccinations

Use the toolkit to design your own promotions. Mix and match, copy or adapt the contents to fit the particular news and issues of your practice or community!
