National Infant Immunization Week is coming!

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is April 22-29, 2017.  During this week, hundreds of communities across the United States will celebrate the critical role vaccination plays in protecting the health of our children, families, and communities. Most parents choose the safe, proven protection of vaccines. Giving babies the recommended immunizations by age two is the best way to protect them from 14 serious childhood diseases, like whooping cough and measles. 

ACOG encourages expectant mothers to choose a pediatrician during pregnancy. NIIW is also the perfect time to learn more about vaccine-preventable diseases and the benefits of immunization by visiting credible websites, like ACOG's Immunization for Women website, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s vaccine website for parents, The American Academy of Pediatrics’ Healthy Children website, and Vaccinate Your Family
