August is National Immunization Awareness Month

Immunization plays an important role in keeping you, your family, and your community healthy. Vaccination helps prevent the spread of disease, especially to those who are most likely to suffer serious complications, such as infants, young children and elders. Talk to your health care provider to make sure your family is up to date on all the recommended vaccines.


National Breastfeeding Awareness Month

One of the most highly effective preventive measures a mother can take to protect the health of her infant is to breastfeed. Although most mothers hope to breastfeed, and 81% of babies start out being breastfed, only 22% are exclusively breastfed 6 months later. This can be greatly improved through support from their families, friends, communities and clinicians.

Summer Safety

It’s great to spend time outdoors when the sun is shining and the weather is warm. However, the sun is also a source of intense ultraviolent (UV) radiation, which can be harmful. So when we spend time outdoors, we need to remember to take steps to protect ourselves and our families.


Zika Virus

Zika is a virus that is spread mostly by mosquitoes. Whether staying at home or traveling this summer, protect yourself from getting the Zika virus by preventing mosquito bites.
