Did you know it’s National Immunization Awareness Month?

What exactly is NIAM?

National immunization month is held every August to raise awareness of the importance of vaccinations. AAP wants to highlight the importance of immunization for all ages. AFC Urgent care supports this cause and we are celebrating NIAM!

Why are vaccines important?

Vaccines help stop us from contracting deadly diseases. It is a common misconception that the disease we heard of from back then is no longer around. (Mumps, typhus, ext). The truth is these diseases are still around but thanks to vaccinations we will rarely ever hear of someone getting these diseases! Children & Adults should always be up to date on their vaccinations, they are safety for ourselves & the whole family.
