Immunization Awareness

Each August, National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) seeks to remind everyone of the important role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases. NIAM was established to encourage people of all ages to make sure they are up to date on the vaccines recommended for them. More information and a communications toolkit can be found on the NAIM website.

In an effort to highlight the importance of immunizations for adolescents, NCPeds recently collaborated with the North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians and the North Carolina Division of Public Health to recognize July as Adolescent Immunization Awareness Month. The effort focuses on the importance of adolescent vaccines in July to coincide with the scheduling sports and school physicals, especially for year-round students. A press release detailing this collaboration is available on the NCPeds website.
