August is National Immunization Awareness Month! It is important to get immunized to protect yourself and your family, especially as children go back to school. Vaccines help you, your family and others in the community from getting certain diseases. By building defenses within your body, you are less likely to contribute to the spread of disease. By protecting yourself, you’re protecting others.
