National Infant Immunization Week/Toddler Immunization Month
National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) and Toddler Immunization Month (TIM) have been celebrated since 1993. They are annual observances that emphasize the need to fully immunize children age 2 and younger against 14 vaccine-preventable diseases. This year's campaign, themed "Immunizations: Stay on Track for a Lifetime of Good Health", encourages a lifetime of good health with timely vaccinations. NIIW will be celebrated the week of April 19-26, 2008 and TIM the month of May, 2008. Use the planning materials below to plan and conduct successful and exciting NIIW/TIM activities in your community. For NIIW information from the CDC, click here
