August is National
From U.S. Department of Health & Human Services:
We all need shots (also called vaccinations or immunizations) to help protect us from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, CASAC is proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month.
Shots can prevent serious diseases like the flu, measles, and tuberculosis (TB). Its important to know which shots you need and when to get them.
Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu shot every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages.
Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in your family gets the shots they need.
Immunization helps prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. To stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and tuberculosis, adults need to get their shots just like kids do.
National Immunization Awareness Month is a great time to promote vaccines and remind family, friends, and coworkers to stay up to date on their shots.
