National Adult Immunization Awareness Week -- October 10-16, 1999

National Adult Immunization Awareness Week (NAIAW) is October 10-16 this year. NAIAW highlights the influenza vaccination season, which typically begins in early fall of each year. NAIAW emphasizes the need for health-care providers and public health officials to intensify their efforts to vaccinate adults according to recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. In addition to specifying the appropriate use of influenza and pneumococcal vaccines for adults, the recommendations cover adult vaccination against diphtheria, hepatitis A and B, measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, and varicella.
