Immunizations - Resource

National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccinations for people of all ages. Communities across the country use the month each year to raise awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases across the lifespan.

Telligen has created a social media toolkit for our collaborative members and healthcare providers throughout our communities to use during the month of August to help encourage patients and families to get the appropriate vaccinations.
