National Immunization Awareness Month

August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM), an annual observance to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages.

Pharmacists are key to raising awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases across the lifespan, and NIAM is another great opportunity for pharmacists to remind their patients about the benefits of immunization.

Pharmacists are encouraged to show their support and spread the word about the importance of vaccines to people of all ages.
