Recognizing National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM)
NIAM draws attention to immunization in August each year.
Each year in August, National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) provides an opportunity to highlight the value of immunization across the lifespan. Activities focus on encouraging all people to protect their health by being vaccinated against infectious diseases. In 2015, the National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC) is coordinating NIAM activities.
Toolkits to Help You Raise Awareness About Immunization
The National Immunization Awareness Month Communication Toolkit was developed by NPHIC, in collaboration with CDC, to help you communicate the importance of vaccination throughout the lifespan. Each week of NIAM will focus on a different stage of the lifespan:
There is also an abbreviated “Ready for school” toolkit to help you communicate about the importance of vaccines for children of all ages before the school year starts.
