National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM)
 

August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM), designed to increase awareness of the importance of immunizations across the lifespan, from infants to seniors. Everyone should check their immunization records to make sure they are up-to-date on their immunizations! And with school just around the corner, parents can take advantage of this time to check their children's records and get them up-to-date and ready for school!

This is a federal government health information website which sponsors a National Health Observance every month, and in August they highlight NIAM. The e-card reminds parents to stay up to date on their families’ recommended immunizations.
