National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is April 20-27. NIIW celebrates the successes of immunization programs around the country and highlights the importance of immunizing.
Since 1994, NIIW has served as a call to action for parents, caregivers, and healthcare providers to ensure that infants are fully immunized against 14 vaccine-preventable diseases.
This year, the American Academy of Pediatrics will highlight its global immunization activities on Wednesday, April 24, as part of World Immunization Week.
The NIIW web page provides many tools and messages that pediatricians and others can use to help observe the week, including a public service ad/poster, parent-friendly audio spots, and fact sheets.
