August is National Immunization Awareness Month

In the month of August we are observing National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). After the past two years, we are all too familiar with vaccinations. We would like to highlight the importance of getting the recommended vaccines including the COVID-19 booster:

1 . Vaccinations protect children and adults from many illness and disease complications.

2. Immunizations and vaccinations are safe and effective. All vaccines undergo many clinical trials, and have been reviewed by the federal government agencies such as the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).

3. Vaccinations help protect those around us. By getting vaccinated, you are fulfilling your public health obligation to the community by eliminating diseases before they get a chance to spread.

If you have any concerns or outstanding immunizations please schedule an appointment at 301-593-9800.
