August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). As school the new school year is quickly approaching, it’s also a good time to make sure your patients and parents are back on track with their vaccines. NIAM is a reminder to all that immunizations protect patients of all ages against vaccine-preventable diseases through on-time vaccination.
The CDC has developed a number of materials to help promote NIAM, including:
- Toolkits for reaching healthcare professionals and parents/patients
- Social media graphics
- Key strategies for making vaccine recommendations
- Communicaton and print resources
- And many other resources that can be found on CDC’s website
Spead The Word
The CDC encourages its partners to share these messages and resources on social media platforms throughout August using the hashtag #ivax2protect.
