Below, please find some updates from AVAC
National Immunization Awareness Month: AVAC released a new blog earlier this week on the essential role of public health and immunization. It helps to promote NIAMs activities. We have updated the dropbox with some messaging to help promote the blog. You can also access AVACs infographics and the Op Ed template, both are a great resource to utilize during NAIM.
