August is National Immunization Awareness Month!

Infants and Children: A healthy start begins with on-time vaccinations

Babies receive vaccinations that help protect them from 14 diseases by age 2. It is very important that babies receive all doses of each vaccine and receive each vaccination on time.

Preteens and Teens: Ensure a healthy future with vaccines

Ready for school? Make sure those vaccine records are up to date! Diseases quickly spread among group of children who aren’t vaccinated.

Pregnant Women: Protect yourself and pass protection on to your baby

Pregnant women share everything with their baby. When you get vaccines, you aren’t just protecting yourself—you are giving your baby some early protection, too.

Adults: Vaccines are not just for kids

You may not realize that you need vaccines throughout your life. Adults need to keep their vaccinations up to date because immunity from childhood vaccines can wear off over time. You are also at risk for different diseases as an adult. Vaccination is one of the most convenient and safest preventive care measures available (CDC March 2017).
