National Immunization Awareness Month
August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM), established to help highlight the importance of immunizing people of all ages.
Every August healthcare professionals strive to highlight the efforts of health agencies to protect patients of all ages against vaccine-preventable diseases through on-time vaccination.
LiveStories encourages you to ensure your patients are up to date and educated about how these diseases are effecting your community—in real time. Research has consistently shown that healthcare professionals are the most trusted source of health information for both parents and patients.
Citizens Looking For Data:
As your children head back to school this fall, make sure vaccination is at the top of your checklist. August is also a key time to make sure you are up to date on all the vaccines you need to stay healthy.
Throughout the month of August we will be sharing information and resources on social media to highlight the importance of vaccines. Help us spread the word! Follow the conversation on #ivax2protect to share why you choose to vaccinate.
