August is National Immunization Awareness Month

We all need shots (also called vaccines or immunizations) to protect us from diseases, and to keep our friends and neighbors safe.  When we receive shots on time, we prevent serious illnesses like flu and measles from spreading through the community.  It is important to know which shots are needed and when to get them.  Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure everyone in your family gets the shots they need.  Make sure your student is up to date with all recommended vaccines before school starts this fall.  For more information, visit:
