August is National Immunization Awareness Month


August is National Immunization Awareness Month, a great time to make sure everyone in your family is up-to-date on immunizations — kids and adults.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services at Vaccines.gov reminds

  • The flu vaccine usually becomes available in mid- to late-August. Getting the vaccine early can help prevent you and your family members from getting the flu throughout all of flu season.
  • Make sure that the whole family is up-to-date on their DTap/Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough) and MMRV (measle, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chickenpox) boosters.
  • HPV vaccines help prevent girls and boys from getting cancers later in life caused by human papillomavirus, including cervical, penile, mouth and throat cancers.
