August is National Immunization Month! Be safe- be sure you and your children are immunized to help prevent potentially deadly diseases that are easily preventable!
National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. NIAM was established to encourage people of all ages to make sure they are up to date on the vaccines recommended for them. Vaccines play in protecting children’s and adult’s health!
