VICNetwork Webinar: Promoting National Infant Immunization Week
National Infant Immunization Week 2016

NIIW is the week of April 16-23!
National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is an annual observance to promote the benefits of immunizations and to improve the health of children two years old or younger. Since 1994, local and state health departments, national immunization partners, healthcare professionals, community leaders from across the United States, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have worked together through NIIW to highlight the positive impact of vaccination on the lives of infants and children, and to call attention to immunization achievements.
Presenters shared resources that will support your planning efforts for the 2016 NIIW campaign and highlighted planned national projects that will complement state and local efforts.
