Every superhero needs their shield—keeping your kids up-to-date on their vaccines keeps them healthy and safe! This week is National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) from April 25-May 2, 2022. It highlights the importance of protecting infants and young children from vaccine-preventable diseases. This year, a primary focus is to ensure families stay on track for their children’s well-child visits and routinely recommended vaccinations, even during COVID-19.
If you have delayed well-child visits or getting vaccines for your kids during the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the time to get caught up.
Babies, children, and teens need regular doctors’ visits to make sure they are healthy and to make sure their development is on track. It is safe to visit your health care provider—and they want to see you!
