We, at Schneider Medical Group Internal Medicine, Raleigh, are one with the entire medical community in celebrating the National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). This observation, sponsored by the National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC) and in collaboration with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is celebrated in August each year. It aims to raise awareness of the various vaccines available to help curb the spread of deadly diseases.
NIAM is also a chance to acknowledge the success of immunizations done at the turn of the 20th century to the present. It comprises not just vaccines given to babies and children, but also to adults who need protection against the flu, pneumonia, measles and other serious diseases.
