National Infant Immunization Week
April 21-28, 2012
National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is an annual observance that highlight the importance of routine immunizations for children younger than 2. NIIW also is a great time to acknowledge and thank the immunization champions who help keep our children up-to-date on their immunizations and healthy.
Coalitions, health departments and other stakeholders are encouraged to use NIIW as a springboard to promote childhood immunizations using local activities, community outreach, media events, and recognition ceremonies.
You can find new ideas, campaign materials, templates and resources for you to plan, promote, and conduct successful NIIW activities. Visit the CDC website section on NIIW at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/events/niiw/index.html.
