August is National Immunization Awareness MonthAugust 5, 2014
August 1st marked the beginning of National Immunization Awareness Month. Each year in August, public health organizations aim to communicate the importance of immunization for people of all ages. This year, the National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC) is coordinating the event nationally. NPHIC has made available a toolkit containing materials to promote the benefits of immunization at various stages throughout our lives.
As the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have pointed out, vaccine coverage amongst adults is consistently low. Still, “CDC is committed to working with healthcare professionals to improve adult vaccination rates and reduce the number of missed opportunities for vaccinations.”
One way to effectively promote adult immunization is by offering vaccinations in the workplace. As such, corporate healthcare providers like Affiliated Physicians provide cost-effective, full-service solutions for On-site Flu Vaccinations. With flu season just weeks away, now is the time to make immunization a priority.
Affiliated Physicians is a national provider of corporate health services including on-site flu vaccinations and wellness screenings.
