National Immunization Awareness Month started this month! With back-to-school preparations and an increase in COVID-19, it is a good time to become knowledgeable about vaccines. This month is also a perfect opportunity to make sure children are properly vaccinated before they head back into the classroom.
Founded by the National Public Health Information Coalition in 2013, National Immunization Month is about highlighting the importance of vaccinations for all individuals of every age. Other objectives for National Immunization Month are to utilize media to reach audiences with tailored messages and resources, and to disseminate consistently, coordinated messages across the national, state, and local levels.
There is not a single preventive health measure more crucial than vaccination and immunization. According to the World Health Organization, the international medical community has strongly endorsed the usage of vaccines and immunizations to prevent and help control a variety of infectious diseases, like chickenpox, diphtheria, Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, and measles.
Individuals can observe National Immunization Awareness Month by checking in with their primary care physician about vaccination needs for their family, and to find out more about the importance of vaccinations and immunizations in their community.
Every vaccine goes through a series of studies and clinical trials before being approved by the FDA to ensure safety and effectiveness.1 Vaccines are studied intensively via the FDA, the CDC, and many other organizations to help explore possible complications from vaccines, especially Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson during this pandemic.
