Do you want to be notified when the flu shots arrive? Contact us today and we will let you know.
Vaccines (shots) help prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. National Immunization Awareness Month is the perfect time to promote vaccines and remind family, friends, and coworkers to get caught up on their shots.
How can National Immunization Awareness Month make a difference? We can all use this month to raise awareness about vaccines and share what we know with our community.
Here are just a few ideas:
• Talk to friends and family members about how vaccines aren’t just for kids. People of all ages can get shots to protect them from serious diseases.
• Encourage people in your community to get the flu shot every year.
• Invite a doctor or nurse to speak to parents about why it’s important for all kids to get their shots.
How can I help spread the word?
We’ve made it easier for you to make a difference! This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
• Add information about immunizations to your newsletter.
• Tweet about National Immunization Awareness Month.
• Host a community event where families can get together and learn about immunizations.
