NATIONAL INFANT IMMUNIZATION WEEK

April 18-25, 2015 is National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW), when the nation highlights the importance of timely childhood immunizations. Since 1994, NIIW has served as a call to action for parents, caregivers, and healthcare providers to ensure that children are fully immunized against 14 vaccine-preventable diseases. New London Hospital and Newport Health Center Pediatrics team members are sporting their Vaccinate 2015 T-shirts in support of NIIW and handing out "I am the herd" bracelets to patients in the 4-year-old and 11-year-old age groups who are up-to-date with the Centers for Disease Control vaccine schedule.
