Posts celebrate World Immunization Day and National Infant Immunization Week

Post in English and Spanish recognized National Infant Immunization Week and World Immunization Week. Health departments, government entities, community organizations, media outlets, NGOs, and individuals emphasized the real-world impact of vaccines, promoted immunization guidelines, and highlighted local, national, and global vaccination efforts. 

Recommendation: Trending conversations about vaccines provide an opportunity for community-based organizations and other partners to recirculate existing content and materials about safety and the importance of routine vaccines. Messaging may emphasize that routine immunizations are backed by decades of research and are held to the highest safety standards. Each year, millions of adults and children safely receive vaccines that have saved millions of lives and spared generations from deadly and debilitating diseases that were once rampant. Ensuring that informational materials explain that recent measles and pertussis outbreaks are due to declining vaccination rates is also recommended.
