National Infant Immunization Week Is April 24–May 1

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW), April 25 – May 2, highlights the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrates the achievements of immunization partners. This year, because of the pandemic, it is critical to ensure that families stay on track for their children’s routine checkups. Since 1994, hundreds of U.S. communities have joined during NIIW to celebrate the critical role vaccination plays in protecting our children, communities and public health. Giving babies and toddlers the recommended vaccinations by age two is the best way to protect them from 14 serious childhood diseases. Access the CDC’s 2021 NIIW Digital Media Toolkit to plan and implement your organization’s NIIW activities. The toolkit includes updated logos, sample social media content, social graphics and key messages. Please share them, using the hashtag #ivax2protect.
