National Immunization Awareness Month Messages Available

August 10, 2020

Pediatricians recognize the importance of immunizations year-round, but the month of August allows for extra attention on vaccinations as National Immunization Awareness Month.

Decreased childhood immunizations rates in Minnesota during the COVID-19 pandemic makes reaching families and parents to reinforce the importance of vaccines all the more important. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer a toolkit for health care professionals with social media messages, graphics, and key educational resources to communicate about vaccines during August.

The #HowIRecommend video series features short, informative videos from clinicians explaining the importance of vaccination, how to effectively address questions from parents about vaccine safety and effectiveness, and how clinicians routinely recommend same day vaccination to their patients.
