Get National Immunization Awareness Month resources

Last modified: Aug 10, 2021

August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM), which highlights the importance of keeping vaccinations on track. We recognize the important role you play in the immunization process for all ages.

We want to help support your work in improving back-to-care vaccination rates, including childhood, flu and COVID-19.

  • Consider reaching out to patients and parents of young patients with phone calls and emails to underscore the importance of keeping immunizations updated
  • Use the Patient Care Opportunity Report (PCOR) and/or your state’s immunization registry to identify members who may need vaccinations
  • Develop and implement vaccination standing orders to enable your staff to give vaccines without the physician seeing the patient
