August is a time when most kids are starting school, or going back for another year. There are WAY too many topics to write about, so I am giving you a link to the American Academy of Pediatrics so you can see what they recommend. But an important (and controversial topic) is immunizations. August is National Immunization Awareness Month, so I think pairing it with back to school month is a relevant topic. These inoculations are not for everyone, so be sure to do your own research. Part of any well-rounded safety program should include injury prevention and discussions about vaccines.
August is National Immunization Awareness Month
Shots (or vaccines) help prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases.Vaccines aren’t just for kids – adults need to get vaccinated to stay protected from serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia.
National Immunization Awareness Month is a great time to promote vaccines and remind family, friends, and coworkers to stay up to date 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 strategies to increase immunization rates in our community.
Here are just a few ideas:
- Talk to friends and family members about how vaccines aren’t just for kids. Shots can protect people of all ages from serious diseases.
- Encourage people in your community to get the flu vaccine every year.
- Invite a doctor or nurse to speak to parents about why it’s important for all kids to get vaccinated.
