San Diego Immunization Program

National Infant Immunization Week & Toddler Immunization Month 2018

Hepatitis A. Influenza. Pertussis (Whooping Cough). These and other vaccine-preventable diseases have made and continue to make headlines here in San Diego and around the US. Vaccine-preventable diseases are a danger to the health of our community.

Infants and toddlers are among those most vulnerable to vaccine-preventable diseases and their complications. It's never too early to start protecting babies' and toddlers' health with immunizations.

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW), is April 21 through 28, and is followed by Toddler Immunization Month (TIM) in May. These observances are celebrated each year to remind everyone of the importance of routine immunizations for children from birth to 2 years of age.

Immunization is one of the best ways to protect your children's health. Children need shots at birth, 2, 4, 6 and 12-15 months and 1-2 years of age to protect them against 14 vaccine-preventable diseases. This is a great time to check your children's immunization records to make sure they are up-to-date. Contact your doctor or other regular source of medical care now to make sure your children are protected!
