Immunization Awareness Month

August is National Immunization Awareness Month. ImmunizeVA is celebrating in a number of ways.

In July, the coalition announced its newest mascot, Tracker. To celebrate Immunization Awareness Month, the coalition is hosting a Tracker-themed coloring contest. Expect to see her tracking vaccines across Virginia!

In August, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam issued a governor’s proclamation to recognize Immunization Awareness Month.  ImmunizeVA also launched an ‘Our Shot’ social media campaign.

Upcoming Coalition events include:

  • a presentation titled ‘Influenza in the time of SARS-CoV-2’ by Dr. Jon Temte
  • a Community Meet & Greet ImmunizeVA Meet & Greet on September 14 and 15
  • Coalition’s annual meeting on September 24.

Look out for daily social media content and weekly educational resources around different vaccine themes each month.
