August Is National Immunization Awareness Month

We’ve been posting and chatting recently about National Breastfeeding Week/Month, but August is also National Immunization Awareness Month.

For pregnant women and newborns, it’s especially important to get timely vaccinations.

vfcprogram_500pxThe National Public Health Information Coalition, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has developed toolkits to help you promote vaccination in August and throughout the year. The toolkits, which include basic information on vaccines, social media messages, and other resources, are available for pregnant womeninfants and children, preteens and teens and adults.
