National Infant Immunization Week
National Infant Immunization Week is an annual observance in April, sponsored by the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, to promote the benefits of immunizations and improve the health of children two years old or younger. Since 1994, local and state health departments, national immunization partners, healthcare professionals, community leaders from across the United States, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have worked together through National Infant Immunization Week to highlight the positive impact of vaccination on the lives of infants and children, and to call attention to immunization achievements.
National Infant Immunizaiton Week is celebrated as part of World Immunization Week, an initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO). During World Immunization Week, all six WHO regions, including more than 180 Member States, territories, and areas, simultaneously promote immunization, advance equity in the use of vaccines and universal access to vaccination services, and enable cooperation on cross-border immunization activities.
