National Immunization Month

National Immunization Awareness Month promotes the value of immunizations for all ages—babes to seniors.

For the month of August, each week focuses on a targeted age group and offers ways to use a recommended vaccination schedule to protect your loved ones from potentially life-threatening diseases.

  1. A Healthy Start (August 3-9) – protect your babies from birth to age 2
  2. Back to School (August 10-16) – protect children, preteens and teens
  3. Off to the Future (August 17-23) – protect young adults and college-age students
  4. Not Just for Kids (August 24-30) – healthy protection for adults

As summer comes to an end, and before school begins, ensure your children, preteens, teens, and college-age students are up-to-date on their immunizations.
