National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) was created to raise the public’s awareness of the importance of immunization. Various sponsored activities are a part of the effort to help and encourage people to get vaccinated. Young or old, it is equally important for individuals to stay current with the vaccinations that will help them to help protect themselves from disease.
Vaccinations are not important simply to help protect you, but it is necessary to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Seasonal flu or influenza can be a killer, especially among the elderly, but it need not be. By staying current with the proper vaccinations, contracting the flu can be avoided. Vaccinations are important even if you are in good health, but it is even more important for individuals who suffer from asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, heart disease or any other chronic disease or condition.
