The spread of misinformation about vaccines is increasing worldwide and outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases are occurring across the globe—creating an opportunity for the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) and others in the immunization community to share accurate information about the importance of vaccination in preventing deadly diseases, during National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM).

NIAM is an annual observance held each August to highlight the importance of vaccination for individuals of all ages. Social media posts during NIAM included blogs, infectious disease facts on Twitter and Facebook, and even gifs on Instagram. NFID has compiled highlights of posts using the designated #IVax2Protect hashtag to help spread awareness, not disease:





#PreventHPV #HPVvax

Super Kids!


NFID urges all readers to #GetVaccinated and share posts widely to help encourage patients, colleagues, friends, and family to stay up-to-date with all recommended vaccines.
