NIIW (National Infant Immunization Week)
National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is a yearly observance highlighting the importance of protecting children two years and younger from vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs). It’s also a time to showcase the achievements of immunization programs and their partners in promoting healthy communities.
For over 25 years, hundreds of communities across the U.S. have joined forces to highlight the critical role vaccination plays in protecting our children, communities, and the nation’s public health.
NIIW 2020 is April 25 – May 2, 2020.
All staff in healthcare practices, including non-clinical staff, play important roles during NIIW. To highlight childhood immunizations this NIIW:
