August is
National Immunization Awareness Month

VaccinationsImmunization helps prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. To stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and tuberculosis, adults need to get their shots – just like kids do.

 Immunizations are NOT just for kids! Regardless of your age, we ALL need immunizations to help keep us healthy. Vaccines reduce the risk of infection by working with the body's natural defenses to help it safely develop immunity to disease. Take a few minutes to protect yourself and others from diseases.
  • Keep track of your and your family’s vaccinations as they're received.
  • Make an appointment with your and your family’s doctor to make sure vaccinations stay up-to-date.
