Welcome to the State of California 

2012 Immunization Week (NIIW) & Toddler Immunization Month (TIM)

NIIW 2012

NIIW is April 21 - 28 & TIM is celebrated through May 2012

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) and Toddler Immunization Month (TIM) are annual observances that highlight the importance of routine immunizations for children younger than 2. NIIW/TIM also is a great time to acknowledge and thank the immunization champions who help keep California’s children up-to-date on their immunizations.

Coalitions, health departments and stakeholders are encouraged to use NIIW/TIM as a springboard to promote childhood immunizations using local activities, community outreach, media events, and recognition ceremonies.

CDPH provides a wide variety of campaign materials and resources for you to plan, promote, and conduct successful NIIW/TIM activities. Documents are formatted in Microsoft Word or a writable PDF allowing you to customize the materials to your needs.
