2012 National Infant Immunization Week / Vaccination Week in the Americas 


National Infant Immunization Week and Vaccination Week in the Americas (NIIW/VWA) will be celebrated from April 21-28, 2012, with the primary focus of promoting and improving immunizations throughout the nation. For the ninth consecutive year, the United States-México Border Health Commission (BHC) will partner with the ten border states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) to bring additional focus during NIIW/VWA to the United States-México border region.

Immunization of children is among the most successful and cost-effective public health achievements that have led to the reduction and prevention of vaccine-preventable diseases. The celebration of NIIW/VWA is another opportunity to advance our efforts in childhood immunizations and overall community public health.

Join us in celebrating National Infant Immunization Week and Vaccination Week in the Americas (NIIW/VWA) 2012.
