This month, our Public Policy Advocates bring to our attention to immunization.

National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. This annual observance highlights the efforts to protect people against vaccine-preventable diseases through on-time vaccination.

As busy entrepreneurs, many of us postpone or cancel appointments and may not have the opportunity to catch back up on needed healthcare.

Your health is important to the continuity of your business, so we encourage everyone to schedule medical appointments to ensure you are up to date on annual exams and recommended vaccines.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), thousands of American adults get sick each year from diseases that vaccines can prevent. For patients with asthma or COPD, vaccines are an important step in protecting their health from serious diseases like influenza and pneumonia.

The CDC has prepared an online tool to help individuals know what vaccines they may need: The Adult Vaccine Quiz.
