August is National Immunization Awareness Month. This annual observance is a great opportunity for health care professionals to remind patients the importance of getting their recommended vaccines.
Visit the CDC National Immunization Awareness Month resources page to assist communications with healthcare professionals, patients, and parents. The resources include key messages, sample social media content and graphics. The CDC also provides resources like the Growing Up with Vaccines interactive guide, which gives information on the vaccines recommended during pregnancy, throughout childhood, and into adulthood.
With the BA.5 subvariant now the predominant strain of COVID-19 and the upcoming flu season around the corner, it’s very important to protect your patients and the community.
The CDC encourages its partners to share these messages and resources throughout August using the hashtag #ivax2protect.
Please visit the CPP vaccine management resources page for other helpful tools and resources.
