National Immunization Awareness MonthFirst, this month marks the annual National Immunization Awareness Month, and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reminds parents that "August is an ideal time to make sure everyone is up-to-date on vaccines before heading back to school and to plan ahead to receive flu vaccines." The AAP notes that some parents have concerns or questions about immunizations, and their website includes information on every aspect of immunization from school vaccination requirements in all 50 states to vaccine safety. They recognize the importance of getting accurate information about immunizations and note that the "AAP Immunization Web site was assessed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and passed their credibility and good information criteria."
