The month of August is National Immunization Awareness Month and with our kids getting back to school in a few weeks, it is important to make sure we get our kids immunized and spread the word!

When we get our children vaccinated, we are not just protecting them from disease and illness, we are protecting our entire community. But vaccines are not just for kids. There are also important vaccination we need as adults. For more information on National Immunization Awareness Month visit #NIAM18.
