August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). This annual observance highlights the importance of getting recommended vaccines throughout your life. We know the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all aspects of life, including your ability to attend important appointments and receive routine vaccinations. During NIAM, we encourage you to talk to your doctor, nurse or healthcare provider to ensure you and your family are protected against serious diseases by getting caught up on routine vaccination.

Vaccines are recommended for adults based on age, health conditions, job, and other factors. Take this online assessment to help determine which vaccines you may need: https://www2.cdc.gov/nip/adultimmsched/
