What's New 

“National Infant Immunization Week” April 18th through April 25th

NIIW is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrate the achievements of immunization programs and their partners in promoting healthy communities. Since 1994, hundreds of communities across the United States have joined together to celebrate the critical role vaccination plays in protecting our children, communities, and public health.

As part of National Infant Immunization Week, CDC announces the recipients of the Childhood Immunization Champion Award. This award recognizes individuals who make a significant contribution toward improving public health through their work in childhood immunizations.

Each year, up to one person from each of the 50 U.S. states, 8 U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States, and the District of Columbia is recognized.

Read inspiring stories of the winners of the 2015 Childhood Immunization Champion Award.
