Annual Immunization Awareness Observances

National Infant Immunization Week (April 24-30, 2023)

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) highlights the importance of protecting children two years and younger from vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that children stay on track with their immunizations even during the pandemic. Visit the CDC's website to learn more about NIIW.

Hepatitis Awareness Month (May)

Hepatitis Awareness Month raises awareness of viral hepatitis and encourages priority populations to get tested. To reduce the risk of hepatitis A transmission, ask your healthcare provider about the hepatitis A vaccination. Always wash your hands with soap and water after going to the bathroom, after changing diapers, and before preparing any meals.

National Immunization Awareness Month (August)

National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is observed in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages.

World Meningitis Day (October 5, 2023)

Together, meningitis and neonatal sepsis are the second biggest infectious cause of death in children under five. They can kill in hours, have life-long implications for those that do survive, and have serious health, social and economic consequences. Many cases of, and deaths from, meningitis are vaccine-preventable, but progress in defeating meningitis lags behind that for other diseases. Each year, World Meningitis Day brings together people from all over the world to highlight the need to raise awareness of meningitis, its signs, and symptoms, the vaccines that are available, and that it is an infection that needs global attention and effort to be defeated. Visit the CDC to learn more.
