August Is National Immunization Awareness Month

Yesterday marked the start of National Immunization Awareness Month, which is dedicated to promoting the importance of immunizations. Hospital staff continue to lead the field in immunizations, with an estimated 92 percent of hospital workers receiving the 2016-17 flu vaccine. To facilitate continued outreach about the importance of vaccines, hospitals are encouraged to download the 2018 National Immunization Awareness Month toolkit. This year’s edition includes key messages, vaccine information, sample news releases, social media messages, online resources and graphics.
