National Infant Immunization Week
April 24-May 1, 2021


National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is a yearly observance highlighting the importance of protecting children two years and younger from vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs). This year, in particular, it’s critical to ensure that families stay on track for children’s routine checkups and recommended vaccinations.

AAP
The AAP is excited to announce the launch a new PSA as part of our Call Your Pediatrician campaign, which urges parents to get caught up on all their child’s immunizations as soon as possible. This new video features a parent taking their child to the pediatrician to be vaccinated, and then turning into an animated superhero. This is a superhero moment!

The new PSAs are available in English and Spanish. In addition to our digital/social media outreach, we are distributing these nationally to TV outlets, along with radio PSAs in English and Spanish.  Please consider sharing this empowering message with parents or partners in your network. These videos and all the other materials from our Call Your Pediatrician campaign are available in this toolkit, where members can also download graphics for social media, videos, and sample social media posts. Our hashtag is #CallYourPediatrician.


CDC
The CDC offers many helpful resources to help you promote vaccination during this week.
