National Immunization Awareness Week

Event Date: 
April 21, 2018 (All day)

Vaccines work to prevent disease in individuals, families, and communities. Vaccines are safe and effective in decreasing vaccine-preventable diseases in our community. However, we continue to see outbreaks of measles, mumps and whooping cough in Canada. Immunizations are not just for kids either. Adults need to keep their immunizations up to date too. Everyone can contribute to decreasing the spread of these infectious diseases.
