National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) began in 1994 as a way to bring awareness to the benefits of immunizing children 2 years and younger. This year the week begins Saturday April 20th and ends Saturday April 27th. NIIW is celebrated as part of the World Immunization Week (WIW) which runs April 24-30th. The goal is to unite countries around the world to increase public education and information about the importance of vaccines. Check out our blog, facebook, and twitter throughout the week for more information about the importance of getting your children immunized.
We are currently enrolling for two vaccine research studies for infants and children under the age of 2. They are our MMR (Measles/Mumps/Rubella) and our Pediatric Avian (bird) Flu vaccine studies. If you are interested in enrolling your child in one of these studies please contact us.
