August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). This annual observation highlights the importance of getting recommended vaccines throughout your life. With vaccines you have the power to protect yourself and your family against serious diseases like whooping cough, cancers caused by HPV, pneumonia, and more.
During NIAM, Lucas County Health Center is encouraging you to talk to your provider, nurse, or other healthcare professional to ensure you, and your family are up to date on recommended vaccines.
A few resources to use include:
- CDC Interactive Guide
- CDC Immunization Schedules
- Iowa Department of Public Health Immunization Requirements
August is the best time to make sure you and your family are doing everything you can to stay healthy.
