August is National Immunization Awareness Month, an annual observance to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. CWWCHC urges you to “Take Your Best Shot” this year to protect yourself and those around you from infectious disease.
CWWCHC also encourages you to get immunizations for your children. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to alarming declines in well-child visits and routine immunization rates. This raises the risk for outbreaks and further strains our nation’s healthcare system. Please call 866-CWW4YOU (866-299-4968) today to schedule your immunization shot.
Diseases that used to be common in this country and around the world, including polio, measles, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), rubella (German measles), mumps, tetanus, rotavirus and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) can now be prevented by vaccination. Thanks to a vaccine, one of the most terrible diseases in history – smallpox – no longer exists outside the laboratory. Over the years, vaccines have prevented countless cases of disease and saved millions of lives.
Do your part. Get vaccinated!
