August is National Immunization Month!
Immunizations help prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. Immunizations are NOT just for kids — to stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia, adults need to get vaccinated too!
How can National Immunization Awareness Month make a difference?
We can all use this month to raise awareness about vaccines and share strategies to increase immunization rates with our community.
Here are just a few ideas:
- Talk to friends and family members about how vaccines aren’t just for kids. People of all ages can get shots to protect them from serious diseases.
- Encourage people in your community to get the flu vaccine every year.
- Invite a doctor or nurse to speak to parents about why it’s important for all kids to get vaccinated.
To schedule your family’s immunizations, call one of our convenient offices for an appointment.
