April 30, 2012

The Sweetwater-Nolan County Health Department celebrated National Infant Immunization Week on Wednesday, April 25 by giving all infants receiving immunizations a no-spill cup and first-aid kit. Pictured is Delainey Allen.

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrate the achievements of immunization programs in promoting healthy communities. This year’s NIIW was April 21-28. Infants are particularly vulnerable to infectious diseases; that is why it is critical to protect them through immunizations. Each day, nearly 12,000 babies are born in the United States who will need to be immunized against 14-vaccine-preventable diseases before age two.
SNCHD provides immunizations every Wednesday from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-4:30 p.m. and the second Wednesday of each month until 6 p.m. To celebrate NIIW all infants that received immunizations on Wednesday, April 25, received a free no-spill cup.
If you think your infant, toddler or adolescent child needs immunizations, contact your local health care provider or call us at the Sweetwater-Nolan County Health Department (SNCHD) at 235-5463.
