Immunization, or vaccination, helps prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. Immunization isn’t just for kids — to stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia, adults need to get vaccinated too.
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.
How can National Immunization Awareness Month make a difference?
We can all use this month to raise awareness about vaccines and share strategies to increase immunization rates with our community.
Here are just a few ideas:
- Talk to friends and family members about how vaccines aren’t just for kids. People of all ages can get shots to protect them from serious diseases.
- Encourage people in your community to get the flu vaccine every year.
- Invite a doctor or nurse to speak to parents about why it’s important for all kids to get vaccinated.

Do you know how to protect yourself from UV ray damage?
- The sun’s UV rays are strongest between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., you should limit your sun exposure during these hours.
- Invest in clothing made from linen or thin cotton fabrics to stay cool AND protected in the sun. Don’t forget a broad-brimmed hat that will shade your ears, neck and face.
- Use water-resistant broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of at least 15. Broad spectrum will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. All sunscreens should be reapplied every two hours and after swimming or sweating.
- Protect your eyes. Check to see if your favorite shades block glare and UV rays -wraparound sunglasses offer the most protection for your eyes and the sensitive skin surrounding them.

“Learning how to spot a stroke is just as important as teaching your family CPR or what to do in the event of a fire. With stroke — just like a cardiac arrest or a fire — seconds count,” he said.
