National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages.
The Minnesota Department of Health maintains data relating to immunization coverage rates. You can view school immunization rates, as well as immunization rates at the county level, based on information collected through the Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC). This data may be helpful to you as you consider how to help increase immunization rates in your area.
The MNAAP will join with MDH in increasing awareness about HPV vaccinations during the week of Aug. 12 by posting to its social media accounts with information about the vaccine. Feel free to re-tweet, or join in the conversation with the hashtag #StopHPVCancerMN.
